Who Are They?

Girls in Tech (GIT) is a global non-profit focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of girls and women who are passionate about technology since 2007. The organization has grown from San Francisco to more than 50 chapters located in North America, Europe, Asia, The Middle East, Africa, and South America.

Girls in Tech has created a number of programs to increase the number of women working in technology, including Global Classroom, an online learning platform that provides access to online courses and resources to improve knowledge in STEM related fields. Other programs include the Amplify Pitch Competition, Mentorship, and tech job openings, amongst others.

What Did We Do?

 

 

 

Last February 11th, among our ikigai initiative (DataikuGorGood), and the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we hosted a synchronised event in both our Paris and New York offices in order to promote « Science and Tech » education and show girls what type of career they could find in the Tech world.

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science has been implemented by UNESCO and UN Women, in collaboration with intergovernmental agencies and institutions, as well as civil society partners, and aim to promote women and girls in science. This specific day’s purpose is to promote full and equal access to participation in science for women and girls.

To this end, we hosted a « Job Shadowing » session in our Paris office (an on-the-job learning, career development, and leadership development program) and a  « Speed-Mentoring » session in our New York office.

These two events aimed to provide to mentees the opportunity for women to get first-hand career tips, prompting career planning, and enabling women to make informed decisions about their future goals and endeavours. The activity also provides 10 Dataikers an opportunity to share knowledge, experience and advice around education, career choices and relevant skills required in today’s workplace.
