Infographic: Why Girls in Tech Matter
June 3, 2014
TechGirlz is changing the equation.
Research shows that girls are as interested in technology as boys up until they enter high school. But by the time they head off to college, many girls with a tech bent have decided to pursue other fields of study. And by the time they enter the working world, even more have abandoned technology to seek other types of careers. TechGirlz is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to reducing — and, we hope, ultimately eliminating — the gender gap in technology occupations. We hold workshops and an annual entrepreneurial summer camp aimed at giving middle-school girls hands-on experience with different kinds of technology and enable them to interact with women who have carved out successful careers in technology fields.
