WE BRING TOGETHER, INSPIRE AND EDUCATE
IT GIRLS SCHOOL
The IT GIRLS SCHOOL workshops series invites 7th and 8th grade students to the CIC business center. During the workshops, students have the opportunity to see how the work of people connected with IT looks like as well as interesting demos of various technological solutions and work in a modern office, such as CIC Warsaw. The program is held in cooperation with Venture Cafe Warsaw Foundation.
Did you know that even 6-year-old girls believe in gender stereotypes? Did you know that at this early stage, many girls will unknowingly abandon their dreams related to certain professions stereotypically considered “for men only”? This is absolutely terrifying! Hence, our small dream is that we, as a society, become more and more aware of these stereotypes. In our "Breaking Stereotypes" project, we will present you the most common, harmful stereotypes related to the field of computer science and new technologies as well as to raising children.
WOMEN IN STEM
Einstein. Newton. Tesla. Gates. Banach Jobs Hawking One could endlessly keep listing like this. But how many of these famous, prominent scientists and inventors were, or are, women? This is exactly what is missing in Polish education. The education about female role models and authority figures in the world of technology and science. After all, it's not like these women don't exist. There are many of them, and that is what we want to highlight in our educational cycle titled "WOMEN IN STEM".
What we do
01. Girls are strong.
We support female students and pupils wishing to study IT, women currently working in IT or wishing to change their profession. Have questions? Need some help? Contact us!
02. Girls can do it all.
We hold meetings with students from primary and high schools. We provide a preview of the realities of studying technical and IT faculties as well as working in the IT industry. We support the development of technological interests among children and young people.
03. Girls are smart.
It's time to end the stereotypical approach to people working in IT. Anyone can work in this industry! Regardless of age, appearance or gender. Girls can! What counts are good intentions, commitment, analytical skills and perseverance in pursuing the goal.
04. We inspire, regardless of gender.
One of our mottoes is "inclusive not exclusive". We would like to emphasize that we do not exclude boys and men from our activities - we also want to encourage them to take up a career in the technology industry and they are always welcome at our events and workshops. Anyway, they often participate in these events and are very satisfied.
05. Girls have potential.
By partnering with various companies and many amazing people, we offer students and scholarships and internships to students and young girls at prestigious companies from around the world. Want to support our activities? Contact us!
