The Women in Tech Council (WTC) has launched a technology internship program to provide high school girls the opportunity to interact with technology companies, meet and interact with women in technology and understand the impact they can have by perusing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers. Participants will tour tech companies – including Vivint, Ancestry, Instructure, Dell EMC, Domo, Adobe, HireVue, and IM Flash – to learn about working in tech, the types of jobs that exist in the technology industry and the employability skills they they need for a successful career in STEM. During their internship, the girls will present at the state educator’s CTE Conference to demonstrate and teach state educators about activities to engage students in STEM. The internship program is an extension of WTC’s SheTech, a program designed to activate, engage, and inspire high school girls to pursue STEM fields and careers through hands-on experience and mentoring with industry experts.
