What We Do
A crucial aspect of all our programs is finding women and non-binary individuals who would not otherwise have thought of themselves as capable of succeeding in a high-tech career. Many people of marginalized genders do not reach their potential in STEM because they think it is too difficult—or do not have role models in the field. By increasing our participants’ self-confidence and interest in technology, we increase the number of adults and youth of marginalized genders who aspire to technology careers, shaping the workforce of today AND tomorrow to have the diverse skills and perspectives needed for the industry to thrive.
ChickTech believes that providing access to technology education for girls and non-binary kids is critical, both to the industry and to their lives. We provide learning opportunities and a supportive community to students of marginalized genders to broaden tech participation and provide equitable opportunities for all.
ACT-W (Advancing the Careers of Technical Women) is a series of woman-focused, continued education and social events held throughout the year, including networking events, online and in-person workshops, conferences, and our membership platform. Whether you’re launching a new career or are a seasoned professional, ACT-W events help build technical and professional expertise while creating a supportive community welcoming of all genders.
ChickTech helps companies create a more empowered and inclusive workplace. When companies partner with ChickTech they demonstrate that they are responsible leaders working to create a world in which people want to do business, and a world in which people want to live.
