WHAT WE DO
Our programs and events provide girls and young women prospects in business and STEM by creating access to information and opportunities, offering educational programming and promoting higher education. They allow us to educate, empower, and inspire youth on an on-going basis — particularly in communities that lack the infrastructure and resources needed to cultivate talent and foster innovation in this ever-emerging and expanding technology driven world.
We understand that today technology is central to all aspects of business. Therefore, at the core of all our programming initiatives is a fusion of business and technology. Participants explore an array of industries, career paths and topics with guidance from leading industry professionals as mentors. The overall mission is to create life-changing and transformational experiences that prepare young girls and women for the future.
