Girls and Women as Technology Creators

Inspiring girls and young women to pursue studies and careers in STEM

Why science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) matters

Today, more girls and women are using technology than ever before. But relatively few girls and women are playing a role in creating this technology or are pursuing studies in the STEM subjects needed to gain the skills for careers in technology and engineering. Intel and the Intel Foundation support a range of programs, competitions, and resources that seek to inspire and empower more girls and women to create and build the technology of the future. We focus on programs that feature hands-on activities such as "Maker" and coding, involve peer mentors and role models, and connect technology and engineering careers to positive social impact.
