Challenge

- 8 out of 10 women have male leaders - 9 out of 10 women are concerned about the low number of women in the technology field. - 1 out of 5 organizations is committed to women 's hiring and leadership progress in technology. - 100% Opportunity of writing a new story for girls, young women and grown women in Latin America. We work with girls and teenagers to increase the number of women in STEAM areas leading the digital economy and close gender gaps diversity in the tech industry.

Solution

We create learning processes around technology, to form creative, strong, independent and capable girls to reduce inequality and gender violence gaps and achieve the empowerment of girls and teenagers through teaching and strengthening tools such as technology & tools for STEAM careers, where women are a minority, with the active participation and articulated work of men, boys, school and family members, as a tool for raising awareness, achieving equal opportunities for boy/men and girl/women.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 300 girls and teenagers, allowing them to expand their curiosity for STEAM areas and expand their possibilities to contribute to a greater economic growth. It will strengthen the gender equality approach since STEAM education promotes greater participation of girls, teens and women in teaching and learning process in STEAM areas. The knowledge they acquire is replicated generationally.
