Get Involved: Share Your Soles
CompTIA's Advancing Women in Technology group has partnered with Share Your Soles to assist women and children.
As the AWIT Advisors considered how we help more women and children find a career in technology we started to talk about what the barriers to the workforce include. We also talked about something we all have in our closets: shoes.
The longer we talked, the more we discussed the importance of shoes to help individuals. Not just in our backyards, but around the globe.
That is where Share Your Soles comes into play. They are located in Chicago but donate shoes to groups and individuals around the world. Our Advancing Women in Technology group has members in 146 countries today - and shoes are being delivered to those who need them most.
Learn more here about what shoes are needed and how you can donate your gently used shoes or make a financial donation here.
