Intel® She Will Connect
At Intel, we are committed to empowering girls and women through technology skills to expand economic opportunities and empower them to innovate in their community. Through Intel® She Will Connect, we focus on closing two key gaps: first, in emerging markets, we are working to connect more women to the Internet and to basic technology skills so they can access information and new economic and social opportunities; and second, in mature markets, we are working to intervene in middle school when girls decide whether to pursue technology careers.
Inspiring Girls to Become Technology Innovators
In the United States, Intel is connecting middle school girls to hands-on technology experiences to inspire them to become innovators and encourage their interests in technology, engineering, and computer science. We are focusing on programs and partnerships that emphasize hands-on activities, use peer mentors and role models, and make a clear connection between technology careers and real-world applications that drive positive social impact.
U.S. Middle School Girl’s Camp
Middle school represents a critical juncture in young women’s lives when they begin considering future academic and career directions. By removing barriers and fueling interest in technology related subjects during middle school, girls will be able to make better informed decisions about their role in technology, engineering, and computer science in high school and beyond.
