Technolochicas Lift

Televisa Foundation´s Technolochicas Lift program for middle school girls has launched in Arizona in partnership with LULAC. 

The Televisa Foundation (TF) and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) have collaborated to expand the Technolochicas (TC) Lift program in the state of Arizona through the support of the Intel Foundation. Through the Lift program, middle school girls (ages 11-14) are equipped with the technological skills they need to succeed in the technology-focused workforce of today and tomorrow.

Latinas occupied only two percent of jobs in the computing workforce in 2016. Qualified, diverse talent is needed to fill an estimated 1.1 million computing-related job openings expected by 2024, and Latinas represent a vastly untapped talent pool.

"Women and underrepresented minorities have not had sufficient access to opportunities that would allow them to enter and succeed in computer science, Technolochicas Lift seeks to redefine this narrative" said Alicia Lebrija, President of Televisa Foundation. 

With this in mind, TF and LULAC awarded 15 schools and/or non-profits in Nogales, Tucson, and Phoenix. Award recipients will now have the opportunity to introduce underserved middle school girls to computer science through hands-on experiences and an engaging TC Lift curriculum.

TC Lift Arizona is made possible through the support of INTEL.
