Empowering Girls and Women through Education and Technology

Every girl holds the power inside to change the world

Investing in Girls and Women to Advance Opportunity

Intel believes education is a fundamental right for everyone, and technology opens doors to opportunity.
Through the Intel Global Girls and Women Initiative, we are working to empower millions of girls and women around the world by:

  • Closing the gender gap in education access
  • Inspiring more girls and women to become creators of technology
  • Connecting them to opportunity through technology access

Educating girls and closing the Internet gender gap also has an important multiplier effect—expanding opportunities for families, communities, and nations.

Intel® She Will Connect

Through the Intel She Will Connect program, Intel is collaborating with global and local partners to close the Internet gender gap and connect millions of women to opportunity through technology.
