July 10, 2019 / Quartz

Female Indian techies are trailblazers of sorts. Around a third of Indias female engineers are first-generation graduates in their families, a new study by TalentSprint has found. It is observed that the aspiration for a global tech career among young women has no correlation with the educational backgrounds of their parents, the firm said in a July 8 press release. The Hyderabad-based online learning firm analysed 7,276 applications for its Women Engineers programme, received from students across 664 colleges and 83 universities in India. Supported by Google, WE will groom 600 female engineers for global high-tech careers over the next three years.
