Wāhine Processing Power

Self E-STEAM Empowerment

Wāhine Processing Power aims to cultivate women and girls to be creators and innovators of new technologies by empowering them with STEAM learning, experiences and networking opportunities. Beyond our curriculum, our work and programs center around building the Self E-STEAM of each participant through Support, Team, Equality, Advocacy, and Mentorship that they need to thrive in today’s world.

Our Why?

The Democratization of STEAM Education & Opportunites for Wāhine and Building a Coalition for Equity and Inclusion in Academia and the Workplace.

Women comprise only 34.4% of the workforce at the five largest tech companies
In male-dominated workplaces,
50% of women claim to have experienced gender discrimination at work.

Only 1 in every 10 developers is
a woman
