Thank you to everyone who helped support our initiative and to raise awareness and support of girls and women in tech. We will be sharing the results and how the funds will be allocated to have the greatest impact on closing the gap around the world in early 2019.

There is an enormous skills gap in tech, especially in cybersecurity. We believe women and gender-diverse talent are the key to filling that gap. The time is now, you are the answer - help us raise the awareness of the growing gender gap in tech and you'll be helping to support programs for young women all over the world with Girls in Tech.

Trend Micro has pledged to donate $100,000 towards Girls in Tech programs to empower young women in tech, but we need your help!

Trend Micro is celebrating 30 years in cyber security this year and to commemorate this achievement, we want to help make a real difference for the next 30 years. Not only are we bringing 30 women from all over the world to re:Invent 2018, we're also investing in young women thanks to AWS an Girls in Tech.

Get Involved!

For every share or retweet of the below posts, Trend Micro will donate $0.30 toward Girls in Tech programs.

It's that easy! Help spread the word, get your friends and colleagues involved, and help us send the elevator back down so that we can lift up the women around us and support them in their careers in STEM!

Thank you for your help, with your support we can all do our part close the gap and secure the future!
