High-Tech High Heels (HTHH) is a nonprofit organization in partnership with the Communities Foundation of Texas. It believes the world will be a better place when there is a diverse, qualified workforce with more opportunities for women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Having women represented equitably in STEM careers will not only increase innovation and make our nation more competitive, but will also have far-reaching global economic and societal benefits.
Their mission is to close the gender gap in STEM professions in the United States, and to increase the number of girls graduating from high school and entering a college-level degree program in STEM.
Join the speakers bureau, which support HTHH's funded programs by enabling counselors, teachers, and other educational staff to find volunteers for their STEM and female-focused events. The primary focus is working with girls of all ages during events where speakers speak directly with a classroom and answer questions students may have about STEM careers, or serving on a panel.
The annual High-Tech High Heels Friendraiser is an evening of cocktails, live auctions, and raffle prizes. Guests can also learn more about how they can help level the playing field for more girls starting at an early age. You will be able to meet organizations benefitting from your donation and learn how your contributions are helping more girls pursue careers in STEM fields.
