AT A GLANCE
What we're about
Her Spark's mission is to equip girls with the STEM skills and opportunities to succeed in the careers of tomorrow - dedicated to solving gender disparity in computer science, engineering and technology careers.
Founded by professional women and business leaders, fueled by the possibilities of engaging with bright, young women to fulfill their passions while diversifying the STEM talent pipeline.
CODING AND BEYOND
Summer Summits invite high school girls to learn practical coding languages and skills in preparation for STEM careers, while introducing them to the latest technologies, such as cryptocurrency, robotics and artificial intelligence. They'll also enjoy "day in the life" experiences to connect with seasoned professionals and recognize how these skills can apply to different career paths, from data sciences to pharmaceuticals to engineering.
Ignite Events provide a variety of engaging learning opportunities for high school girls throughout the year, from diverse panel discussions with industry pros and hands-on demonstrations in a classroom setting, to field trips and career path demonstrations.
