Celebrating International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, March 2014

Through access to technology, scholarships and community learning programs, Intel provides girls and women with opportunities for quality education and personal growth.

How will YOU show your courage?

In March, we celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month to raise awareness of the importance of educating girls. At Intel, we believe that education and opportunity should be available to all, regardless of gender. Change takes courage, and courage takes many forms. Courage starts with YOU. Take our Week of Courage Challenge. #iamcourage

Educate a girl. Change the world.

Girl Rising is a global action campaign for girls' education. It started with a groundbreaking, inspirational film. Now it’s a movement to lift barriers to girls' education, to drive change and motivate leaders to take action. Bring Girl Rising to your community. Buy the DVD and organize a screening, a panel session, a poetry slam -- whatever moves you to action. What counts is that we all do something. Purchase your copy on iTunes, Amazon and girlrising.com.

Intel is a founding strategic partner of the Girl Rising campaign as well as supporter of the digital distribution of the film.
