Eva Longoria Supports TECHNOLOchicas
Play a role in innovation.
TECHNOLOchicas is a national initiative of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) and Televisa Foundation designed to raise awareness among young Latinas and their families about opportunities and careers in technology. TECHNOLOchicas uses the powerful stories of Latinas from diverse backgrounds, who are in technology fields, and recognize the power of innovation to change the world. These stories allow girls to see and relate to real-life role models.
TECHNOLOchicas Ambassadors speak at events, volunteer at workshops, participate in interviews, and organize outreach activities in their community to inspire Latina youth.
If you are a Latina over the age of 18 who is pursuing a career in tech or working in a tech-related field, we invite you to sign up and become a TECHNOLOchicas Ambassador!
“You look at the sky, and I think, ‘I can’t tell the depth.’ And the fact that I can’t tell how far it goes for the sky, it makes me think, ‘How vast can space be?”
“This event was another demonstration of how AT&T invests in our youth and in building a diverse and inclusive workplace. Young people want to learn about innovative careers, and we’re beyond excited to introduce them to some of those amazing opportunities.” // AT&T Global Lead Consultant-Diversity Deneen L. Garrett as she talks about our recent #ATTDiversityTrek event in Southern California.
“Being part of the tech field gives me the opportunity to share the excitement of building and creating things with other people. It’s inspiring and motivating.”
The TECHNOLOchicas spent this last month of 2017 celebrating not just the holiday season, but also #CSEdWeek! From Arizona to Dallas to New York City... we were everywhere, showing everyone that we need more Latinas in tech. Check out some of the highlights below.
