It’s here! We kicked off the 2021 WTC SheTech Summer Internships on June 7th with a program overview and networking workshop hosted by Kristi Holt, Founder and CEO of Vibeonix. Girls also joined sessions with AWS and Progressive Leasing to kick off the next two weeks of small interactive sessions with industry mentors offering their experience and advice about their own path to the STEM and tech jobs they love.

 

The SheTech internship program helps high school girls like you gain an insider view to many different types of tech careers and find out what it’s like to work with different companies in the industry. The summer internship program will run June 7-18, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week with more than 30 different sessions across a dozen organizations. When you select your internship sessions you’ll be part of a small group of students who get to connect directly with company presenters and mentors and have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with real people in the industry.

As we wrap up the SheTech 2020-2021 year, these internship sessions will be held virtually with one optional in-person event. Are you wondering what skills are used every day, or what topics to study to stand out in a crowd of applicants? Sign up for SheTech and join us for the 2021-2022 program for a full year of FREE activities and events that lead to our SheTech Explorer Day and next year’s Summer Internship program!

We had such a fantastic time at the 2021 SheTech Live Virtual Summit connecting girls from all over the world to hear from inspiring women like the Olympic Moguls Medalist, Shannon Bahrke, who kicked off as the opening keynote speaker! Shannon shared her experience as a two-time olympic medalist and three-time olympic athlete, and invited us to share in her amazing journey about finding life’s passion, overcoming challenges, and chasing BIG DREAMS. We learned more about taking on the world by setting goals to achieve our vision and embracing our #girlpower! Shannon’s entrepreneurial spirit as a published children’s author inspired us all to embrace what makes each of us unique, and how our own life experiences can help us overcome barriers we may face in pursuing STEM fields and career opportunities in tech. Thank you, Shannon, for sharing your incredible story and inspiring us to imagine the possibilities with your message this year at the Virtual Summit!

 

We heard from a whole host of amazing Women Innovators who told us about the amazing things waiting for us all in tech, like Michelle Amos, a former NASA engineer who helped put the Perseverance rover on Mars and her work with Artemis to help supply the next moon mission where the first woman will set foot on the moon! Zehra Syeda showed us that you can help run cloud solutions for one of the world’s largest companies while staying true to who you are. Leonie Markgraf talked about the amazing technology that goes into every bottle of Coca Cola we drink and how you can do great things whatever your interests may be. Wendy Williams was a shining example of shattering the glass ceiling in aerospace and defense with her work at Northrop Grumman and reminded us that WE are the ones who get to choose how we carve our pathway to the future. And finally, Lynda Pak told us about some incredibly imaginative tech that powers the future of beauty and that there’s a place for all of us to choose that in our future. We are so appreciative that these incredible women took time out of their day to share the story and pathways that took them there. If you missed out on the live stream, you can catch it all here in the video below from our YouTube channel! Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on March 1, 2022 for the next SheTech Explorer day.
