Project Prep is a book aimed at girls and young women, highlighting the wonders of working in tech.
The project is an initiative of Inspiring Fifty. A non-profit that aims to increase diversity in tech by making role models more visible.
Around 90% of jobs are estimated to need at least some level of digital skills and we are facing a big shortage of skilled people to fill all jobs in technology. At the same time recent research shows that girls lose interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) already at age 15. The study uncovered the need for more female role models as crucial as well as the need to provide girls with the opportunity to express their creativity through hands-on experiences.
