Why Connecticut Needs Girls for Technology
Computing and Engineering jobs are among the fastest-growing and highest-paying positions in the U.S. More girls and young women should be given the knowledge to benefit from these STEM based occupations. They must also know they can be leaders within these fields. We all know girls and women in the U.S. use technology as a daily part of life, yet they are grossly underrepresented in the creation process.
We here at GFT give girls and young women the opportunity to learn with other girls and encourage them to pursue STEM-related careers. No need for grades! No judging! No labeling!
