Mente en Acción

 Finalizamos la 11va edición de MenTe en Acción el 04 de marzo y había dado inicio el 08 de febrero. Recibimos 199 aplicaciones de las cuales se seleccionaron y graduaron 50. Durante estos ocho sábados aprendieron sobre empoderamiento de género, de liderazgo y trabajo en equipo; así como las bases de la programación para desarrollar un prototipo de una aplicación móvil que responda a un Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. Contamos con el trabajo de 20 mentores/as técnicos/as que apoyaron a las chicas a desarrollar este prototipo.

Esta edición fue co producida con el Parque La Libertad-CETAV, lugar donde realizamos hasta la cuarta sesión, ya que debido al COVID-19 tuvimos que finalizar de manera virtual la edición. Para esta edición contamos con el patrocinio de Intel, P&G y Accenture, y de aliados contamos con Agami Studios y Efecto Boomerang.

Por otra parte, actualmente nos encontramos en convocatoria abierta para la 12va edición de Mente en Acción que se llevará a cabo específicamente para mujeres de la provincia de Guanacaste y en modalidad virtual. Dará inicio el próximo 4 de julio y finalizará el 08 de agosto.
