Qualcomm, Inc. Accepted by Steve Mollenkopf, Chief Executive Officer

Qualcomm collaborates with IIE to manage the WeTech program, which helps women and girls enter and succeed in technology careers, with the goal of enhancing women’s talent and skills needed to fuel technological and economic growth. WeTech inspires girls and women, from 5th grade to adulthood, to connect with each other, to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and to enhance their own technology skills with which they will build a better tomorrow. In China, India, the U.S, and soon Taiwan through an expanded partnership, WeTech links girls and women to technology-related training and to mentors that help prepare them to enter and succeed in high-paying technology careers.
