October 11 marks the second annual International Day of the Girl, a United Nations designated holiday to recognize girls’ and women’s rights around the world. In celebration of this year’s theme, “Innovating for Girls’ Education,” Intel recently announced She Will Connect, a digital literacy program aimed at reaching 5 million women in Africa, where the gender and technology gap is greatest.
Yesterday, many of Intel's top leaders joined girls with the YMCA's TechGYRLS program at our headquarters in Santa Clara as part of Intel's Global Giveback Day to encourage a love for math and science.
