Next Tech Girls
Just 17% of people working in the UK technology industry are women.
Next Tech Girls’ mission is to tackle this disparity at the grass-roots level and improve gender equality in the technology sector by providing 5,000 girls with meaningful tech work experience by 2020. If we want to see change, we must drive it.
Next Tech Girls partners with companies to deliver tech-focused work experiences in the UK, providing school girls (years 10-12) with insights into tech careers and the numerous opportunities available to them. Not only does this inspire young students, but it helps raise awareness of the gender imbalance in the industry and promotes a culture of inclusivity.
