Girls at The Tech
May 6 | Women in Tech: Finding Your Path
Presented by Intuitive Foundation
May 6, 2021, 4-5:30 p.m. Pacific
The 2021 Women in Tech: Finding Your Path event will virtually convene business leaders and high school girls for an afternoon of mentoring and community! Please save the date for this interactive event to learn about what it takes to have a career in tech. This program is designed for young women 13 and up, but all are welcome.
Career Chat + Mentoring Session
In the first half of the program, you’ll hear from our special guest speaker Esther Wojcicki, the “Godmother of Silicon Valley” and author of “How to Raise Successful People," who will be interviewed by Miss CEO Founder Nita Singh Kaushal. Afterwards, students will connect with women in STEM via small-group breakout rooms, where they'll have the opportunity to learn more and ask questions.
Mentoring Opportunity: STEM Leaders, We need You!
Please consider joining us as a mentor if you are interested in inspiring students at this event. Training is provided. Companies supporting our Girls at The Tech program will have priority to provide mentors.

Every day at The Tech
Professional Development for Educators
Teachers are key influencers in a young woman’s attitude about STEM. The Tech provides professional development workshops for teachers through The Bowers Institute. We help educators become aware of gender bias in the classroom and equip them with tools to support equitable teaching practices.
Designing for Inclusion
The Tech strives to provide programs, exhibits and experiences that are designed to engage audiences who are underrepresented in STEM education and careers. Our staff members are versed in current research on education, conduct program testing with diverse audiences and hold equity in design as a core development concept.
Adding a Why
Research shows that engineering, computer science and other STEM careers are more appealing when young women see them as tools for solving a problem they care about. Through programs like The Tech for Global Good and partnerships with organizations like the Girl Scouts, The Tech provides girls with opportunities to develop their own solutions to some of the toughest challenges facing our planet.
