Technovation are a global tech education non-for-profit that empowers girls to become leaders, creators and problem-solvers. Their innovative program equips young women with the support of volunteer mentors and parents; girls work in teams to code mobile apps that address real-world problems and help them develop into our future entrepreneurs and leaders.
In the dynamic world of technology, a striking gender gap persists, with just a 25% representation of women in the sector. Amidst this global challenge, Technovation has emerged as a beacon of hope, a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering young women by using technology to solve real-world problems in their communities.
The Spectris Foundation are supporting Technovation’s ambitious 15 year strategy and over the next two years hopes to impact 1,426 young women’s lives through Technovation Girls.
