How we’re changing the STEM equation for girls
Nearly 10 years ago, Mastercard created Girls4Tech, our signature STEM education program that focuses on girls and engages our employees as role models and mentors, highlighting their payment technology backgrounds. We believe this corporate-community partnership is helping to level the playing field and to reduce the inequities between boys and girls pursuing STEM careers. Why? Because we know that when there are multiple voices with myriad experiences at the table, we create better technology and better products and services for our customers. To date, we’ve reached 5.7 million girls, and according to research conducted by Euromonitor, we are now the world’s largest STEM program designed for young girls.
