This year, the Microsoft DigiGirlz boocamps, are 100% virtual and will be using the opportunity to connect with girls across North America and Africa for a panel and 90-minute bootcamps throughout the week. DigiGirlz is Microsoft’s signature program for girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) globally. The goal of DigiGirlz is to raise awareness about the variety of exciting and meaningful careers available in the technology industry while dispelling the stereotypes typically associated with high tech jobs and the people in those roles.

International DigiGirlz Virtual Bootcamp
Inspiring girls to pursue their dreams with STEM!
We are pleased to invite you to our first International Microsoft DigiGirlz
Panel & Bootcamp! This year we are 100% virtual and will be using the opportunity to connect with girls across North America and Africa.
The International Microsoft DigiGirlz Panel & Bootcamp is an online experience designed to provide girls, aged 14-18, with a better understanding of what a career in technology is like, offer hands on experience in workshops and hackathons, and enable cross cultural collaboration and networking.
We kick off with our International Microsoft DigiGirlz Panel on March 4th, 11am-12pm EST / 8am-9am PST. In honor of World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, you’ll hear from people across the globe on how and why they joined the field of engineering and get a teaser for the Bootcamp the following week.
The DigiGirlz Bootcamp starts March 8th, coinciding with International Women’s Day, and will consist of 90-minute bootcamps throughout the week. During the sessions attendees will get hands on experience on how technology can support the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDG’s). We will close the week with a hackathon where the girls will get to demonstrate their creativity and international collaboration on a solution aligning to one of the 17 SDG’s.
To accommodate multiple time zones, the DigiGirlz Bootcamp will have two time-zone options. To ensure a consistent experience and groupings for the girls throughout the Bootcamp, you must register for the same time zone option for each day.
International DigiGirlz Bootcamp Day 1 : March 8th
International DigiGirlz Bootcamp Day 2 : March 9th
International DigiGirlz Bootcamp Day 3 Hackathon : March 11th
