So many girls start out with a love of science and technology but lose it somewhere along the way. At Google, we believe that a diverse workforce leads to better products for diverse users and we are especially committed to reversing the negative trends around women in technology-related fields. We were thrilled to partner with the Us Programme on their 'She Who Discovers' event in Dublin, to help educate and inspire young females to break boundaries and achieve their career goals.

The Us Programme is unique in that it is run by young people for young people. This is key - it makes it relevant, the team and their guests are relatable role models who genuinely inspire the young women.
I love how they encourage them to speak at events and try new things. You can see how their confidence grows from one event to the next. It’s a pleasure and privilege to support.

’m incredibly proud that we were able to sponsor the US Programme’s inaugural event in Birmingham. I was privileged to witness 55 schoolgirls transform over the course of a single day into confident young women ready to take on the world.
The girls worked in teams to design ‘the ideal business of the future’. They were brimming with ideas about how businesses could be built on principles of tolerance, kindness, and equality.
I believe the young women left the event with rightfully higher aspirations, equipped with new tools and techniques to help them succeed. The positive impact of the Us Programme was clear to see – it’s a brilliant initiative to be a part of.
