"CWIT's ""You Can Be Anything"" video uses the power of media to give young people, particularly girls and young women, a very positive impression of the career opportunities available in information technology (IT) and science-related fields where technology plays a major role. This short, fast-paced, high-quality video uses the techniques of music videos to portray a wide variety of women, both past and present, using technology in a variety of fields. The music and images are combined in exciting ways that appeal to young people, engage their emotions, capture their attention, and convey the message that technology is cool and offers many exciting fields for women as well as men.
