Empowering Girls and Women through Education and Technology
Every girl holds the power to change the world
Investing in girls and women to advance opportunity
Intel believes education is a fundamental right for everyone, and technology opens doors to opportunity. Through the Intel Global Girls and Women Initiative, we are working to empower millions of girls and women around the world by closing the gender gap in education access, inspiring more girls and women to become creators of technology, and connecting girls and women to opportunity through technology access. Educating girls and closing the Internet gender gap also has an important multiplier effect—expanding opportunities for families, communities, and nations.
Educate a girl. Change the world
Girl Rising is a global action campaign for girls' education. It started with a groundbreaking, inspirational film. Now it’s a movement to lift barriers to girls' education, to drive change and motivate leaders to take action. Bring Girl Rising to your community. Buy the DVD and organize a screening, a panel session, a poetry slam—whatever moves you to action. What counts is that we all do something. Purchase your copy on iTunes*, Amazon and girlrising.com.
Intel is a founding strategic partner of the Girl Rising campaign as well as supporter of the digital distribution of the film.
