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!
TECHNOLOchica Karina Canales is featured in the most recent issue of Google’s "Careers With Code: Game – Changing Jobs of Tomorrow," along with a mention of our TECHNOLOchicas campaign. // “People think CS is scary, but it’s actually really fun."
“If you have the willingness to achieve amazing things and be creative, you are the perfect person for technology.”

Latinas have such unique perspectives, backgrounds, experiences and ideas. Not only are they different but they are extremely valuable to every company in Silicon Valley that is seeking to gain the attention and devotion of people like us who share our experiences in the United States and beyond. We have so much to offer to ourselves, our communities, our companies and the world at large in this moment in time. I am so proud to be a Latina Software Engineer.” TECHNOLOchica Madelyn Tavarez attended the Latinas In Tech Silicon Valley Summit, and sharing some of the wisdom she gained.
