Sigma Software Supports Technovation Girls Program in Brazil
2 min read
Every year, girls across the globe step up to solve problems in their community with technology through Technovation Girls. Supported by a network of mentors, ambassadors, volunteers, and parents, these girls are changing the world. Sigma Software believes that technology is a great tool available for everybody, so we support the Technovation Girls Program in Brazil.
As part of our global efforts in promoting equality and highlighting female opportunities in today’s booming tech industry, Sigma Software Group supports engaging women in technological careers. One of the initiatives we take part in is the Technovation Girls Program in Florianopolis. The competition aims to spark interest in the sciences and technology and to enable & empower girls to create solutions to problems facing their communities. To participate in the competition, 80 girls that study in public schools or are socially vulnerable will be selected.
Working in teams, girls will find a problem in their community and build a mobile app or AI project to help solve it. Along the way, they will develop their collaboration, problem-solving, and leadership skills. Besides that, they’ll learn how to develop a business plan and a pitch to launch the app in the market. The winning team of Florianópolis Technovation Girls will receive a laptop and will compete in the worldwide semi-final. There, they will run for a scholarship at the programming and technology school, I Do Code.
Our colleague, Adriana Pelosi Feitosa, Head of Sigma Software’s office in Brazil, has been selected to the judge’s board.
“For me, it’s a great joy to support this project. Mainly because I had a humble childhood, studied all my life in public schools, and know how difficult it is for these girls to have access to great opportunities. My wish is that many women who emerge from this initiative will make a difference in the technology market,” says Adriana.
