Girls and Women as Technology Creators, Innovators, and Leaders

Inspiring more girls and women to pursue studies and careers in STEM

Why STEM Matters

Today, more girls and women are using technology than ever before. But relatively few are playing a role in creating this technology or are pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Intel and the Intel Foundation support a range of programs, competitions, and resources that seek to inspire and equip more girls and women to create and build the technology of the future.

Inspiring Girls and Women in STEM

74 percent of girls express interest in STEM, but only 0.3 percent choose computer science as a major. Learn about Intel’s support of innovative programs that are closing the gender gaps in computer science, engineering, and technology.

The Maker movement has the potential to engage more girls and women in creating technology.
