Women between the ages of 15 and 19, interested in professional development in fields related to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, can participate in one of the 100 scholarships for the 18th edition of “MenTe en Acción”.
This program is worth more than $550, about 361,000 yen, and the girls receive scholarships thanks to the support of sponsoring companies, including Accenture, IBM, P&G, Intel and Emerson.
Participants will attend 19 nine-week virtual sessions on topics such as technologies with a purpose, programming logic, design thinking, programming workshops, gender empowerment and leadership.
In addition, as a team they will develop and program a prototype for a Celus application in line with the goal of sustainable development.
