Tech Girls Movement
The Tech Girls Movement was designed to get girls interested and engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). With research saying that girls opt-out of STEM at 6 years of age, mainly in part due to a lack of visible female role models and a lack of understanding of what STEM professionals do.
The programs are based on over 20 years of research on gender, diversity, STEM, and entrepreneurship. There are online events and a shop with the ‘Tech Girls are Superheroes’ books.
