Young girls who like to program and code as much as they like to play with dolls are pushing their way into computer and science labs, but they may not be receiving the same support or opportunities as their male counterparts. Why not?
Through the power of mentoring, TechWomen brings together female scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians who can work to resolve our world's most pressing issues, making the world we share a better place, one woman at a time.
Maintaining support and the ability to keep women and girls in STEM fields is equally as important as getting a "foot in the door." How do we do this? I'll reiterate again, that mentorship is an amazing gateway to support and success.
Technology is powerful, and so are the women behind it. TechWomen is a springboard to integrate more women and girls in technology. It builds on Secretary Clinton's life-long commitment to empowering women and girls.
