At UKCWC, We understand the importance of cultivating the interest on STEM for girls from a young age. We leverage our platform and influence to inspire the next generation to embrace the tech future, and to help them integrate to the technology community at young age. Targeting mainly school girls aged 11 and above, UKCWC is delighted to kick off the program “Girls in Tech” aiming to inspire young ladies to gain insights into the tech world – whether they are interested in a future career in Science, Technology, Engineering or would like to know a bit more about tech for fun!
Last year 2020, our GIT program organised round table, talks and panels with influential guest speakers and STEM girl role models. Yet, there is more to come in 2021. Watch the space.
