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!

Beatris is a fabulous role model. She is not only passionate about her job and education, she is also passionate about helping others move forward. We are proud to have Beatris as a student and know that she will continue to share her diversity passion and love of IT, even after she becomes an alumnae of our program.” // We are equally proud of Bea, and we couldn’t be happier to have her as part of TECHNOLOchicas, helping to inspire more #LatinsInTech!
