The Digital NEST has been trying to bring more gender diversity into the space and into the tech world as a whole. A group of girls started to meet weekly to discuss how to address the gender gap in the tech industry. They decided to name the group Athena, which is the namesake for our blog.
Our mission is to bring a diverse group of voices, opinions and interests surrounding tech to the public. We created a space where all girls think about the ways in which technology already influences their lives and become active players in that environment.
When we refer to girls, we want to make the effort to extend that to all girls, including those of the LGBTQ community. Read what they have to say on our new tech blog!
