About High-Tech High Heels

High-Tech High Heels funds programs to prepare girls to pursue degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) by working with both educators and students. Our goals are accomplished through grants to non-profit organizations. Non-profits must be invited to apply.

In 2001, the High-Tech High Heels Fund (formerly called the Women of TI Fund) was founded by 30 Texas Instruments (TI) women who were concerned with the low number of females graduating with technology related degrees. These women made personal contributions to establish a donor-advised fund at the Dallas Women’s Foundation (DWF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

High-Tech High Heels is open to all who are interested in preparing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM professions.

High-Tech High Heels developed three programs and supports non-profit organizations with grants to run these programs:

  1. Equity Training for Educators
  2. STEM Career Workshops for Educators
  3. Advanced Placement Physics Camps for high-school girls.

In August 2011, the High-Tech High Heels Fund announced that these programs would be expanded through the STEM Equity Pipeline managed by the National Alliance of Partnerships in Equity Education Foundation.
