HYDERABAD: With a vision to promote entrepreneurship and innovation among women, ‘Girls in Tech’ (GIT), a San Francisco based firm, forayed into the country and officially launched its India chapter here in the city on Monday. Girls in Tech, a global non-profit organisation, was born out of the need to provide a platform for women to cultivate ideas, learn skills and advance their careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
Speaking at the inaugural, Michael Mullins, Consul General, US Consulate General, Hyderabad said, “This will be a terrific platform for girls to move a step closer to fulfilling their dreams. Back in US, there are nearly 5 lakh jobs lying vacant in IT field as there are no eligible candidates. Imagine, what happens if all these jobs are filled with women? The entire scenario will change and will boost to economy.“ Sree Divya Vadlapudi, national MD of Girls in Tech said they are going to conduct workshops, hackathons in near future.
