While it’s never too late to start learning technology skills, according to Terri Rinella, Accenture Digital Managing Director, it’s important to start teaching STEM skills at a young age, especially for girls. “When I was 8 years old, I read an article about flying trains in a children’s magazine, and I wrote a letter to the editor. That editor wrote me back and encouraged my interest in STEM — and helped me decide to go into engineering.”

How can we support and encourage young girls in STEM? Check out what Terri is doing with Accenture and Blue 1647, an entrepreneurship and technology innovation center, to support young women in STEM, and learn how you can encourage girls in this field.
