Initiative Encouraging Young Latinas to Pursue Careers in Technology

TECHNOLOchicas is an 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.

Plus: TECHNOLOchicas LiFT seeks to increase the number of middle school girls pursuing technology-related studies by the time they reach high school. Televisa Foundation and the League of United Latin American Citizens launched the Technolochicas LiFT program in Arizona in 2018. The program teaches middle school girls aged 11–14 computer science through in-person workshops and activities. The TECHNOLOchicas website provides a list of cities and sites around the nation that offer TECHNOLOchicas LiFT.
