These chicas love technology and they want to encourage other women to follow their same passion.
TECHNOLOchicas is all about sharing stories of Latinas dominating the tech world. The program, created in conjunction with National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) and Televisa Foundation, wants to give Latinas the resources and connections to make their dreams come true. According to the website and U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Latinas are the fastest growing demographic of women and IT is the fastest growing segment of the economy. By 2050, it is estimated that Latinas will make up 26 percent of women in the U.S. TECHNOLOchicas is aiming to raise awareness for young Latinas to know about their opportunities in the world of information and technology and even Eva Longoria has endorsed the organization and their mission.
“I’m a woman in technology but I also know that I bring different things to the table,” Natalie Rodriguez says in the trailer for the program. “I bring a different perspective.”
