Femmegineering is an initiative where females in the tech industry are highlighted and allowed to share their experiences with girls who want to or are already studying to become an engineer or work in tech. Femmegineering also wants to help elevate the status of being a girl in a tech program and support them in their choice of education. By contributing to a higher status of those in a technical college or university, we want to make them feel a greater sense of belonging and become more positive towards education.
We want this to trickle down the grapevine and reach younger girls who will hear more positive words on being a girl in tech. This will hopefully contribute to more girls applying for tech schools and thus making the situation more balanced.
