Blueshift Innovation is proud to support Girls in Tech KC and Girls Who Code. The Girls in Tech KC movement addresses an increasing demand for a qualified and diverse workforce to fill tech jobs in the Kansas City region. Although women hold 57 percent of all professional occupations nationally, they represent only 26 percent of professional computing occupations and only 6 percent of Chief Information Officer positions, according to 2014 data analyzed by the National Center for Women in Technology.
Please use #GirlsinTechKC to talk about opportunities on social media.
Girls in Tech KC is an initiative through KC STEM Alliance, a collaborative network of educators, business partners and organizations that inspires interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers.
