Cloudera STEM event marks International Day of the Girl

 October 06, 2021

For International Day of the Girl, Cloudera hosted an event featuring a conversation with Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen, Founder and CEO of the Tech Girls Movement Foundation, who shared how parents can get their kids involved in STEM activities, with some examples of some of the amazing things kids are already doing.

Encouraging an early interest in STEM

How do we increase the number of women in technical roles? We get more girls interested in STEM at a younger age.

Cloudera understands that one way to improve gender parity in technology is to help drive exposure, interest, and curiosity about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Cloudera encouraged employees to bring their kids to watch the live stream featuring Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen and to participate in the live Q&A. The kids also had an opportunity to lead the conversation.

Providing further resources to inspire young minds

This isn't the first time Cloudera has worked to drive early exposure to STEM.

Take a look at Cloudera's fabulous resource - A Fresh Squeeze on Data - that aims to inspire more girls into choosing STEM subjects and careers.
