A technology and innovation leadership programme for young women in the Wellington Region
Rotary Hutt City, in partnership with Hutt City Council, our Principal Sponsor, and Hutt Valley High School, have launched a new Rotary youth programme aimed at year 11 and 12 female students. We are excited about this new initiative!
This innovative programme is designed to attract and engage young women in the field of technology. It’s well known that diversity in the workplace leads to more innovation. Women are under-represented in the STEMM (science, technology, engineering, manufacturing, mathematics) sector and Hutt City Rotary and Hutt City Council want to change that.
Participants will experience a large range of technologies through hands-on activities and be witness to innovation they never thought possible. Our intention is to inspire young women to the myriad of opportunities open to them. Knowing what can be possible will help them to make informed decisions about their future education and career paths.
Check out the article on Stuff. It mentions there will be 20 attendees, which is a small error. We will be having 40 students on the programme.
