The film, Fighting the Gender Gap, works to empower minority groups in technology by dismantling negative stereotypes surrounding technical careers. It features a variety of girls that have an impact in STEM to allow young girls to imagine the possibility of a STEM career. The film aims to change the stereotype that computer science is not a career for women and minorities by rebranding what it means to be a computer scientist.
