ITWomen Teams with Columbia University Girls in STEM


ITWomen is excited to team with Columbia University to provide mentors to inspire girls in Columbia’s week-long STEM intensive program in Miami July 18-22, 2016.

The Girls in STEM program will be held at the iPreparatory (iPrep) Academy with the support of the Miami Dolphins and the Miami-Dade County school system.

ITWomen has reached 22,000 girls through our Role Models initiative in South Florida over the years. Our mentors share their career journeys and support the aspirations of girls for futures in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).

One of South Florida’s great female tech leaders, Miami Dolphins CIO Tery Howard, will be giving back again as an inspirational guest speaker at Columbia’s Girls in STEM program in Miami.

Columbia’s Girls in STEM Initiative is designed to reach rising junior and senior female students about computer science, Python programming, leadership skills, and the value of a professional network.

Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies (SPS) is conducting the Girls in STEM initiative.The series of one-week summer programs will be held in cities throughout the U.S. The program kicked off in June in San Francisco.
