Our ChickTech: Career events help women of all ages build their networks, learn skills, and get the support they need to build a career in tech. The yearly ACT­W conference brings together women of diverse backgrounds and experience levels from a number of technical fields. We also hold a number of workshops and meetups throughout the year.



Over the course of a year, ChickTech: High School builds girls’ confidence, teaches them vital skills, and introduces them to a wide range of technological interests, from robotics to game design to programming. We are passionate about removing barriers to girls’ involvement in tech, so all ChickTech: High School programs are free to participants.



We currently have chapters in six locations throughout the country! Interested in getting involved or learning how to bring ChickTech to your city?

Without having the experience of ChickTech, I wouldn’t have even thought to be interested in technology. Now I want to go to school for it.
