With company tours, innovative workshops and unique encounters, they explore new horizons and share their experiences with the community.
More than 300 young girls/women who are committed to promoting diversity within digital technologies. The JUMP IN TECH alumnae form a community of BECOMTECH ambassadors who receive long-term support from BECOMTECH with their different professional and personal endeavors. Each Ambassador receives individual and group support over the course of several years.
Nationwide and every year depending on tech opportunities and BECOMTECH activities.
The Ambassadors lead beginners’ coding sessions for all audiences (adults, professionals, young people, etc.) and become the go-to digital expert in their family environment.
