This month we had the privilege of participating in SheTech, the largest industry-led STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program, to help inspire and educate high school girls about the benefits of STEM degrees and the successful careers that can blossom from them.
The program, presented in Salt Lake City by Women’s Tech Council, has gained tremendous exposure in the Silicon Slopes community attracting nearly 3,000 high school girls and hundreds of tech industry volunteers and mentors. Attendees have been able to learn from hundreds of technology companies, speak to leading professionals, take part in tech-related challenges and nail summer internships.
Our involvement in the program stems – you see what we did there? – from our Taulia Cares initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to meet our social responsibility and give back to communities, going beyond our day-to-day tasks at Taulia. Employees taking part in Taulia Cares has significantly risen since it launched and we hope to grow the initiative even further, in line with the company’s growth.
We’ve been immensely proud to be part of the SheTech program in Salt Lake City and in the future we hope to see many more young women embarking on a career in STEM. It was a pleasure speaking with so many talented, bright and passionate girls on the day. And who knows, perhaps one day we’ll see one of the young women we spoke to at SheTech embark on a career with Taulia.
