Turning teens towards tech

teen-turn is a great way for companies to change how girls identify with careers in technology through two-week summer work placements.

“As a technology based employer, we are very happy to be involved”, says Kerrie Power, HEAnet CEO. “Programmes like this are vital in helping to break down STEM gender stereotypes and promoting diversity in the workplace.” STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics)

By focusing on girls, teen-turn aims to influence course decision-making processes, inform participants on education and career options, and combat stereotypes by strategically changing how girls identify with technology career environments through summer work placement.
