The fourth annual "Global Marathon For, By, and About Women in Engineering," providing information and insight for women worldwide on careers in engineering and technology, will "follow the sun" and the business day around the globe from noon EDT Wednesday, March 26, to noon EDT Thursday, March 27.

The 2008 Global Marathon at www.eweek.org features six continuous four-hour blocks of virtual online programming, kicking off in North America and proceeding westward through five additional regions: Mexico/Latin America, China, India, Africa/Middle East, and UK/Europe before returning to North America for closing ceremonies.

The 24-hour marathon of webcasts, Internet chats, and teleconferences will connect an international community of women in engineering, technology, and other professions with expertise in a variety of disciplines on the benefits and wide ranging possibilities of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Each presenter will lead a 30- to 60-minute presentation with postings and questions from participants worldwide. All sessions and presentations will be archived for future access.
