TECHNOLOchicas

TECHNOLOchicas shares the powerful stories of Latinas from diverse backgrounds who are in technology fields so girls can see and relate to real-life role models.

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. Youth can learn about the journeys of the role models, watch how each one of them is succeeding in their technology-related fields and get motivated to create the technologies of the future!
