Kids’ Vision’s current program takes place @ Tesla Motors & Mozilla !
Kids’ Vision’s mission is to promote gender equality in Silicon Valley by empowering elementary school girls to embrace an interest in STEM and to develop leadership skills that will help them to navigate their way through school to be prepared to choose any career, including a STEM career.
We want to offer our program to girls who have diverse ethnicities and income levels.
Everybody knows that women are a minority in STEM jobs in Silicon Valley, but not everybody is doing something to change this. At Kids’ Vision we are doing something to improve gender equality in Silicon Valley; we strive to address the main causes that keep most of our girls from pursuing STEM related careers:
Lack of interest in STEM
Absence of female role models working in STEM related careers
Belief in limited potential
Lack of leadership skills
