Investing in Girls and Women to Advance Opportunity

Intel is investing in accelerating closure of gender gaps in technology access and career paths by empowering more girls and women to use technology, connecting them to economic and social opportunities and inspiring them to become future innovators.

Through the Intel® She Will Connect program, we are collaborating with others to:

  • Connect more women to the Internet and to basic technology skills in emerging markets so they can access information and new economic and social opportunities.
  • Inspire more girls to become future technology creators and innovators, with a focus on interventions that result in more middle school girls to continue studying technology, engineering, and computer science in high school.


Educating girls and closing the Internet gender gap also has an important multiplier effect—expanding opportunities for families, communities, and nations.

Findings in the groundbreaking Women and the Web report revealed the need to reduce the gender and technology gap around the world.
