‘Tech Girls Are Superheroes’ by the Tech Girls Movement stands up for what’s right and what matters – helping young girls to reach their dreams
‘Tech Girls are Superheroes’ Founder and leader Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen today assured the community that she would continue to stand up for the next generation of young girls who were ready to join the tech girls movement - no matter what hurdles were thrown her way.
“Recently I’ve become aware of an initiative that is so similar to Tech Girls Are Superheroes that it’s making people look twice to see if it is the same,” Dr. Beekhuyzen said.
“I can assure my supporters and sponsors that this is not my work, and it misrepresents us and the good image of Tech Girls to benefit a profit-driven group.
“I am proud of the fact that we have helped hundreds of thousands of girls reach their dreams, and we have done it with the passion of young girls across the country, and the generous support of our community,” she said.
Jenine said while she supports programs that help get more girls involved in STEM, she was not about to let her good work and the work of her supporters be compromised or disrespected.
“We are a not-for-profit group that has worked hard to advocate for, and support thousands of young students to gain a passion for STEM and transform the industry’s future.
“It’s been my passion in life and I’m so proud of what I have been able to achieve working with so many amazing people who have shared my passion.
“Tech Girls Are Superheroes is not based on a desire to make money, rather it gives young girls who all deserve the opportunity to have a rewarding, interesting and challenging career, an opportunity to make a real difference in the world.
“It is time to rally our community, and I’ll continue to be a positive role model and stand up for what’s right,” she said.
Jenine encourages our Tech Girls Movement community to join the Real Tech Girls Are Superheroes campaign by:
