Elevate Women in Technology Scholarship
A $500 grant empowering the next generation of extraordinary women leaders in tech.
About the Scholarship
From shaping our behavior, to shifting our beliefs, to redesigning our interactions, technology is rapidly changing the world. The rise of technology has created a wealth of personal and professional opportunities and the ability to leave a positive dent in the universe.
It’s critical that women be at the forefront of our tech-driven world.
Globally, women are significantly underrepresented in the tech sector. While many factors contribute to the gender imbalance in tech, it’s indisputable that having more women in tech will fuel innovation and lead to better social and business outcomes.
During my career in technology, I’ve benefited from having amazing female leaders who have increased my empathy, compassion, and effectiveness as a leader.
The Elevate Women in Technology Scholarship exists to move the tech industry in the right direction by empowering the next generation of extraordinary women leaders.
