How SAP Software & Solutions is helping inspire young women to pursue careers in tech.
By Kate Morgan (Head of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategic Partnerships for North America, SAP Software & Solutions)
The SAP Palo Alto office transformed into a workspace for 60 middle school girls on a Saturday this fall. Giving up their day off and getting out of their comfort zones, these middle school students were there for a day-long workshop in computer science and technology – Girlsmarts4tech. The hope? To inspire these young women to pursue careers in tech.
Today is International Girls in ICT Day and Cisco has been celebrating all month long by hosting fun and instructive mentoring events that have been designed to help to educate young women about careers in information and communications technology (ICT). With over 70 events taking place globally from Belarus to Boxborough, one thing is clear – girls love technology! Let’s work together to keep it that way.
