In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, Entain made a $250,000 donation to Girls Who Code to encourage young women working within the technology industry.
With the partnership spanning Canada, India, the UK and the United States, Entain believes that the scale of its support makes Girls Who Code one of its ‘most significant global partners’.
The Entain Foundation is also set to make a $50,000 contribution to The Tech Girls Movement in Australia – an organisation that ‘aims to challenge gender perceptions which limit girls’ participation in STEM’ subjects.
By offering a range of school-based intervention programmes, Tech Girls offers mentorship to young women within the technology industry.
The announcement coincides with a panel event held for global employees of Entain to mark International Women’s Day, following this year’s theme of ‘Choose to Challenge’, celebrating the achievements of women and challenging gender bias and inequality. This video shares some of the highlights from the event.
Our Media Executive Erin Gallagher interviewed Grainne Hurst – Corporate Affairs Director at Entain – and Deborah Singer – CMO at Girls Who Code discussing the partnership and talked about the need to challenge gender stereotypes and how their global partnership can help change the future of the tech industry.
