Girls + Tech

Although this post is not really about fibre it is about empowering girls. One thing I love about our fibre realm at ACAD is the amount of ladies! It is an amazing atmosphere that feels comfortable and secure. To be in a place that makes you feel confident frees you to explore and experiment. That’s what I like about Tekla Festival. It is an all girl tech conference where girls of any age can come and interact with technology without any boys present. It gives girls a chance to try something they might not normally experiment or play with in hopes of encouraging more girls to work in the tech industry. Check out the video… I want to go…

  1. Technology and myself definitely have issues. This would be a great festival to attend, especially being that it is all women. Is there one in Canada? Happy International Women’s Day!
