• Dell Provides Young Women Mentorship during the Girls Track at DWEN 2017

      Few programs equip girls with the skills to pursue their career interests and passions. This is especially true when it comes to Science, Engineering, Math and Technology (STEM) – fields often dominated by males and now critical to building a successful business. Because studies show girls become disinterested in STEM by middle school, Dell created the DWEN Girls Track for girls ages 12 to 16, which focuses on STEM skills and entrepreneurship, to foster peer-to-peer collaboration among the girls and mentorship from DWEN delegates and speakers. As DWEN connects female entrepreneurs with networks, sources of capital, knowledge and technology, the Girls Track invests in girls so that their path to entrepreneurship can be a guided one. At the 2017 DWEN Summit, Girls Track participants joined DWEN delegates during keynote speeches and also had exclusive breakout sessions focusing on key business topics such as storytelling, goal setting and budgeting.
