Intel’s Girls & Women Initiatives objective: Empowering girls and women through technology to participate and prosper and lead in the global economy
So the opportunity in front of us is great. But we know that the issues are complex and require collaboration at many levels. Intel has developed a 3 pillar strategy to address the gaps that women face globally, and have developed programs and collaborative partnerships with the hope of achieving measurable progress before the end of this decade.
- First, is Digital Inclusion – increasing the opportunity for girls and women to use technology.
- Second is helping to enable broader Access to Education – whether it is through our direct programs or through our partnerships.
- Third is the need to develop technology solutions that directly benefit women and girls – from rural IT solutions that provide access to engaging software developers to “code for good” and create apps that can help women connect with economic, education, and health resources.
