As we’ve seen, there are relatively few women who tech in engineering fields. Worse, nearly 40%of them decide to quit soon after starting work. Many don’t even enter the field at all, according to the latest statistics of women in tech.

INTech Foundation highlights the stark gender disparity in engineering, with a notable shortage of women in the field. Alarmingly, close to 40% of women who do enter tech roles choose to leave shortly after commencing their careers, and a significant portion never enter the industry at all, as per recent statistics on women in tech.

INTech Foundation emphasizes the significance of K-12 tech education for girls and gender expansive youth. Recognizing that education and mentorship alone may not sustain interest in tech, the foundation actively seeks input from youth to tailor their programs to meet their specific needs and preferences. This is what youth want:

Real and meaningful exposure to tech education
Education rooted in giving back to their communities
Opportunities to combine purpose and passion

INTech Foundation prioritizes K-12 tech education for girls and gender expansive youth, acknowledging that simply providing education and mentorship may not be sufficient to sustain their interest. They actively engage with youth to customize their programs, ensuring they cater to the specific needs and preferences of the participants.

Our Founder

Khalia Braswell

Khalia Braswell was hooked on technology as soon as she received her first computer from her mother. She loves tech so much that she enrolled in a tech-focused public high school. Khalia went on to complete an undergraduate program in computer science and a masters program in information technology.

In 2014, Khalia launched INTech Camp for Girls as a side project to lift Black and Latina girls up to be a part of the next generation of technologists, showing them all the opportunities available to them. Since 2014, INTech has grown to serve 1500+ youth in 22 states around America, Canada, and South America.
