The Power of Representation: Girls in Tech

“I have enjoyed increasing my potential customers, and I hope to reach more of them.”

SPENCER LÓPEZ - MARKETING

Fortunately, there's been a growing recognition of the importance of diversity in tech. Many companies and organizations, like Modelit, are actively implementing initiatives to support and empower girls in STEM. By showcasing diverse role models, we challenge the notion that tech is a male-dominated field and encourage girls to see themselves as future leaders, innovators, and changemakers in the tech world.

Modelit is proud to have participated in this year's "Techy for the Day" initiative as part of our ongoing commitment to reducing the gender gap in the IT field.

Organized by the Uruguayan Chamber of Information Technology, this initiative opens the doors of IT companies to high schools, allowing tech professionals to engage directly with young women at a critical juncture on their educational paths — when they are about to choose their high school specializations.

At Modelit, we believe in the power of technology to transform lives and the importance of diverse perspectives in driving innovation. During "Techy for the Day," we had the pleasure of hosting a group of 16-year-old students. We introduced them to the vibrant world of IT, and discussed the vast opportunities available to them in the STEM fields. Our goal was not just to inform but to inspire, showing these young women that a career in technology can be exciting, impactful, and, most importantly, accessible.

It’s important to note that our dedication to diversity and inclusion in the STEM fields extends beyond a single day’s event. We understand that real change in the industry requires ongoing effort and engagement. That's why Modelit is exploring new ways to extend our reach beyond these designated event days, looking to organize additional sessions in the future to engage with more young ladies and more educational centers.

By investing in these initiatives, we aim to foster an environment where young women can see themselves as future leaders in technology. Together, we can break barriers and cultivate a diverse generation of technologists who will lead us into a more inclusive future.
