High-Tech High Heels
High-Tech High Heels believes the world will be a better place when there is a diverse, qualified workforce with more opportunities for women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Having women represented equitably in STEM careers will not only increase innovation and make our nation more competitive, but will also have far-reaching global economic and societal benefits.
High-Tech High Heels has a vision to close the gender gap in STEM professions in the United States by providing opportunities for young women to become the leaders of tomorrow in these fields. Our mission is to increase the number of North Texas girls graduating from high school and entering a college-level degree program in STEM. We achieve this mission by providing grants to non-profit organizations that offer proven programs for educators and students.
Over the past 14 years, the programs we have funded, such as equity training and STEM career workshops for educators and AP Physics camps for high-school girls, have improved student performance in STEM subjects and increased the number of girls who enroll in college and earn a four-year degree in a STEM field.
High-Tech High Heels is open to all who are interested in preparing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM. To learn more, please visit www.hightechhighheels.org.
