Our mission is to empower minorities and promote inclusion in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) through a virtual program designed to inspire the interest and participation of youths. We foster leadership, equal opportunities, and social commitment, thereby forging a path towards a more diverse and sustainable future.
Why was Geeky Latinas created?
Due to the low presence of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).
Only 36% of graduates in these careers are women.

Only 35% of students enrolled in STEAM professions are women.
Only 30% of STEAM graduates are Latinas.
Only 7% of girls see themselves in technical professions in the future.
Geeky Latinas, since its inception, has focused on empowering minorities, particularly girls and young people, providing them with the necessary tools, inspiration, and support to challenge inequalities in STEAM.
This program was conceived with the objective of not only providing knowledge in science and technology but also fostering leadership, social commitment, and gender equity, thus transforming the narrative and access to STEAM disciplines for a more inclusive and diverse future generation
To do science, the essential elements are the love for knowledge, curiosity, perseverance, and a mentor who guides and stimulates you in the process. Geeky Latin@s is basically a large circle of mentors. I invite you to discover them and to discover yourself
