Despite very real strides made for women in science, tech, engineering and math (S.T.E.M.), they are still under-represented in the workforce — especially in the tech space.
1,000 Dreams Fund wants to continue to do our part to help change these statistics for women — even as many college women are facing unprecedented changes in their lives due to COVID-19.
That’s why we are so excited to kick off our FOURTH year for New Face of Tech Challenge — in partnership with tech giant HARMAN —and the prize pack is awesome. We will be awarding 40 winners with $1,500 grants, career coaching sessions with HARMAN executives, JBL product, and more! Winners will also be featured online, representing the #NewFaceofTech.
The program funds and fuels the aspirations of talented female college students pursuing careers in tech — and you can apply TODAY! If you have career aspirations in tech, send us a photo that demonstrates how you represent the #NewFaceofTech along with a personal account describing how you would use the grant funding to achieve your goals.
“The unique times we currently face simply accentuate the already-critical need to grow the pipeline of women entering the STEM fields. The mission of 1,000 Dreams Fund aligns with the HARMAN-inspired vision of empowering the next generation through access to education,” said Annette DiBenedetto, Global Lead, Corporate Affairs & Sustainability Engagement at HARMAN.
