Dear Esteemed Friends,
Pacifica Institute cordially invites you to attend the panel “Harnessing technology to empower women and young girls in the digital age” on March 15, Wed at 11:30 PM PDT, 2:30 PM EST at the Salvation Army in NY for the United Nations NGO CSW67. Our panel will showcase three innovative projects that aim to empower women and young girls through the use of technology.
The first project (HER) is an online tutoring program designed to help and empower Afghan refugee girls at middle school. Through this program, girls are connected with tutors who provide them with academic support and mentorship. The goal of this project is to help these girls overcome the challenges they face as refugees and gain the skills and confidence they need to succeed. The second project (Python4Girls & Hackathon4Girls) is focused on encouraging and motivating young women and girls to pursue careers in the tech field. Through a series of free coding classes and hackathons, we aim to inspire young women to explore their interests in tech and gain the skills they need to succeed. By creating a supportive and inclusive environment, we hope to break down barriers that have traditionally kept women out of the tech industry. Finally, our third project focuses on sparking climate change activism in young girls through the agency of innovation and technology. By providing girls with the tools and resources they need to learn about climate change and take action, we hope to create a generation of young women who are passionate about protecting our planet.
These three projects are just a few of the many ways in which technology can be harnessed to empower women and young girls. Through this panel, we hope to inspire and encourage others to use technology as a means of empowering women and girls and creating a more equitable world.
Please join us online or in-person for what promises to be a thought-provoking and inspiring panel discussion. Zoom link information is provided in the flyer.
