Girls and Women as Technology Creators, Innovators, and Leaders

Inspiring more girls and women to pursue studies and careers in technology

Why It Matters

Today, more girls and women are using technology than ever before. But relatively few are playing a role in creating this technology or are pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Intel and the Intel Foundation support a range of programs, events, and resources that seek to inspire and equip more girls and women to create and build the technology of the future.


To close the gender gap in the tech industry, we will achieve greater results through collaboration. This “WiSci” public-private partnership is just one of many examples of the steps we’re taking. See what the experience meant for girls who learned new skills as they worked together to innovate technologies for positive social impact in their communities.

The Maker movement has the potential to engage more girls and women in creating technology.
