imagiLabs is building an app, a community and gadgets for teenage girls to learn to code in Python.
We know that technology is the future and we want girls and boys to be equally involved with technology & hence shaping the future.
Gender equality is yet to be realised in the tech industry.
Women make up only 16,5% of all Information & Communication Technology professionals in the EU (Eurostat, 2018). This is actually a decrease over the past 10 years from 22%. (Eurostat, 2008)
We inspire and expose girls to tech before their education pathways are set in stone.
According to a US-wide study, up until the age of 11 girls and boys have a similar interest in tech (Google, Gallup). In Sweden, a recent study found that 86% of 11-year-old girls claim to be interested in technology, a number that drops to 37% by age 15 - while boys' interest is sustained.
