and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based
ChickTech: High School revolves around creating events that will get high schoolers
interested and excited about technology. These events pose some
interesting challenges, as we expect that most of our participants have
never had a chance to do anything like what we are offering. Our goal
is to reach the girls who would make great engineers, but because of
stereotypes and a lack of opportunity, may not realize it until they are
already doing something else, if at all. We also strive to show the
relevance of each workshop to their lives–and help them to understand
that they have the ability to transform the tech industry!
We facilitate hands-on technology-centric events
to empower, support, and increase the confidence of women and girls.
Through our events, we build community, empower participants to see
themselves as leaders, and provide networking and mentoring
opportunities in the rapidly growing high tech industry.
