Empowering Girls and Women
Intel believes technology opens doors to opportunity, and we are committed to empowering girls and women through technology skills and hands-on experiences.
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.
Launching Million Girls Moonshot
As part of our She Will Connect scaling strategy, the Intel Foundation joined forces with STEM Next Opportunity Fund (former Robert Noyce Foundation) and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, co-founders of Intel, along with the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to launch the Million Girls Moonshot, a transformative movement designed to help close the science and engineering gender gap by engaging one million school-age girls in STEM learning opportunities over the next five years across all 50 US States.
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.
US Middle School Girls 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.
