Challenge

Women make up only 30% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) globally, and men vastly outnumber women majoring in STEM fields in college. Gender gaps are too high in the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future and women face barriers that inhibit their interest, development and permanence in STEM: 89% 10-years-olds feel that they are not good at math; 43% 17-year-olds do not know any women who work in technology; only 6% apps were created by women.

Solution

Through this project young women in the region are fully accompanied with virtual, personalized and sustained opportunities, from their first steps in technology to their academic and professional development. The objective is to evolve the digital stereotype and empower more women to access high-profile roles within the tech industry and get involved in solving problems for the future of our world. Teaching digital skills now to young women, means they will benefit from it their entire life.

Long-Term Impact

Empowering girls and young women to pursue careers in STEM will add nuanced perspectives that will lead to the world's greatest new innovations. Furthermore, in the long term,In the long run, increased opportunities for women in these fields results in greater economic success and equality for women in all areas.
