A NEW REALITY: tech summit for marginalized girls in New York City, Saturday, August 18th hosted by SAP Next-Gen #SheInnovates community in support of UN Women. This FREE full day summit starts with registration at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. Breakfast and Lunch provided.
The summit goal is to spark innovative creativity in the minds of young marginalized girls from NYC communities to consider careers in STEM. Currently, black women and women of color represent less than 9% of Apple employees, 4% of at Facebook, and less than 4% at Google (techcrunch). The urgency and focus on girls of color, in tech is high and necessary.
A NEW REALITY will provide technical & profession; skills training to girls with limited access to technical education. This experience will assist the girls in shaping their academic and careers goals. The summit will allow girls from marginalized communities to envision themselves in spaces and careers traditionally not accessible to them.
This interactive, stimulating, and high-energy summit will expose girls to the latest tech & digital trends in blockchain, A.I., multi-media, gaming, and robotics.
A NEW REALITY participants will select 1 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Global Goals, to create an app or software prototype solution to a challenge in their community using Design Thinking. These young leaders will have the opportunity to connect, build, and engage with the industry's leading professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders and mentors.
To make this summit possible we are partnering with local community organizations and regional educational institutions to register desired participants. We ask all youth & organizations wishing to attend to register.
