Intel Ireland, Leixlip, hosted their annual Women in Technology Presentation evening on Tuesday 20th 2018

On November 20th, Intel Ireland unveiled its 2018 Women in Technology Scholars, as well as the recipients of its Women in Technology Award.

Congratulations to our 2018/2019 Women in Technology Scholars who received their awards on Tuesday.

In its seventh year, the Women in Technology programme aims to encourage a new generation of high-achieving women to take up the challenge

Intel in Leixlip, offered the scholarship to six female students and the Women in Technology Award to nine ladies. Each of this year’s selected scholars have embarked on their first year of college, studying a course related to Science, Engineering or Technology. And each scholar is supported by one of many business groups, including, Movidius, Intel Labs, FAB24 and Manufacturing Validation and Performance.

The scholarship programme offers a monetary grant, as well as opportunities for work placement at the Intel Leixlip campus. Each scholar is also assigned a mentor who will offer support and guidance.

Nine women, who have completed Level 6 or 7 qualifications, received this award, which involves a monetary payment, and were selected based on academic excellence.

Hugh Hardiman, Director of Public Affairs, Intel Ireland, commented “At Intel we have a strong commitment to diversity and as part of that commitment, we are delighted to have the opportunity, to encourage more young women to pursue careers in science and technology. As well as giving them firsthand experience of the career opportunities at Intel”
