According to U.S. government statistics, Latinos comprise approximately 17% of the U.S. population but hold only 6% of computing occupations. Currently, Latinas comprise only 1% of these occupations. Inspiring them to pursue technology careers can help to increase these numbers.

Latinas & Tecnología de la Información, an NCWIT website containing both English-language and Spanish-language resources, provides:

  • fact sheets for creating awareness about the current state of girls’ participation in technology
  • talking points about various types of undergraduate courses and careers available in computing
  • videos and profiles of successful Latinas addressing attractions to technology and possible barriers in the field
  • links to computing activities and recruitment programs for young women
