The Mx Center for Women in Technology (CMTMx) is the result of the joint work of four women (Carmen Polanco, Mexico; Nathalia Sautchuk, Brazil; Paola Perez, Venezuela; and Erika Vega, Colombia) who are part of the regional Internet community and the collaboration of ANUIES, the National Association of Universities and Higher Education Institutions.
The project includes two lines of action. On the one hand, it will implement the #EllaEnElDesarrolloDeInternet initiative, which focuses on mentoring women who are studying ICT careers in the universities of Mérida. These students will receive training to help them develop their digital skills in Internet Resources, Network Management, Security, IPv6, and Basic and Advanced Routing. The young interns will contribute and participate in the deployment of Internet infrastructure at State Government entities and Educational Institutions that will be connected to the IXP node in the State of Yucatán.
The second line of action is the BootcampCMTMx experience. The Bootcamp will consist of a week of activities and workshops for girls and adolescents aimed at promoting the development of mobile applications, computer architecture, robotics and networking. The ultimate goal of the project is to contribute to the construction of a society where girls and women can actively participate in the broad world of technologies for Internet development.
