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 girls with no limited access to technical education with technical and professional skills training in shaping their academic and professional careers goals. The summit allows marginalized girls to vision 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 connect, build, and engage with the industry's leading professional, 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 .
Support us as we spark creativity in the minds of the next generation of STEM leaders.
