Girls Inspire Tech: is your daughter passionate about technology?

Diversity is essential, also in the world of science and technology, where many inspiring women have achieved and continue achieving great things every day. Promoting the end of the gender gap in the technological environment and strengthening the image of women in sectors related to STEM careers is essential to approach concepts such as Cybersecurity, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Hacking, Programming, etc. to the girls and young women who aspire to become Lady Hackers in the future.

Girls Inspire Tech´s third edition, promoted by Telefónica's #LadyHacker and dedicated to the daughters of company employees, seeks to promote diversity in the technological environment and inspire the youngest to continue to keep up their enthusiasm for working in this field.

Therefore, in this last edition, held in January 2020, Chema Alonso and our #LadyHacker members inspired the girls in our technological laboratory, with different workshops to learn and develop their knowledge.


About Girls Inspire Tech

At Telefónica, we believe that in order to create technology you have to be passionate about it, and there should be no correlation between gender and occupation. That is why we have launched Girls Inspire Tech, an initiative promoted by the best professionals working in Telefónica, in the Aura Units (Artificial Intelligence), ElevenPaths (Cybersecurity), LUCA (Big Data) and Cuarta Platforma, to support the dream of those girls who are passionate about technology and fields related to STEM careers.
