Introducing The AI Forward Alliance with Technovation!

The AI Forward Alliance (or “TAIFA”) will equip millions of girls and young women worldwide with cutting-edge tech and AI skills.

Become a Technovation Mentor to support this initiative to empower 25 million girls and young women through AI, coding, and entrepreneurship with Technovation’s educational programming.

TAIFA’s network and community partners include UNICEF and Grameen Foundation India, both of which will extend the initiative’s global reach, powering the Alliance towards its long-term goal of seeing six million young women enter the technology workforce by 2030.

Girl Geek X and the App Inventor Foundation will expand access to mentors, and develop enhanced training materials for educators, respectively.

Google and The Patrick J. McGovern Foundation are TAIFA’s vital funding partners.

“Mentors check in with the students via a one- or two-hour online video call once a week,” says Bryant Gomer, Technovation’s senior director of volunteer engagement programmes.

“Outside of that time, they keep in touch via email and WhatsApp. They are volunteering to our students, helping them understand more about technology innovations and bringing their own knowledge and resources to their learning. They are really making a difference.”

The next event on March 12, 2024 in New York, NY:

A World of AI Driven Tech: Addressing a Global Talent Gap

Join Technovation and UNICEF for a day of conversation and networking that brings together women who have excelled in different areas through tech-driven expertise.

We aim to showcase to girls and women that it is possible, through education, to break the glass ceiling and be champions and leaders of empowerment for other girls.
