High-Tech High Heels is a donor advised fund at the Dallas Women’s Foundation. 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 – concerned with the low
number of women graduating with technology related degrees - made personal
contributions to establish a donor advised fund at the
Foundation (DWF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The Fund is open to all who are interested in preparing and encouraging girls to
pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The Fund developed the three High-Tech High Heels programs:
- Equity Training for Educators
- STEM Career Workshops for Educators
- 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.
