On December 14th, 2022, we raised a glass to toast ChickTech –  our milestones, community, and the fight for gender equity in tech & beyond. We spent the evening with the ChickTech community of staff, volunteers, students, ACT-W Members, & partners to reflect and celebrate an amazing 10 years as we continue to amplify our mission and the current and shifting focus towards a more equitable future in tech. 

This virtual celebration was a great reminder of why we do the work we do, our staff shared their heart and purpose for their continued efforts toward supporting marginalized genders within the tech industry. 

Volunteers provided well wishes for the continued longevity of our organization while continuing to offer their support and service. ChickTech thanked our financial partners and donors for their stewardship because without their contributions, ChickTech wouldn’t be possible. 

I am in awe of how the community of youth participants and ACT-W members rally around ChickTech. They believe in our mission and stand by us through our ever-evolving innovations to ensure we provide the best programs and services possible. It was such a delight to know that ChickTech has made a difference in their lives and career trajectories. 

This celebration allowed us as staff to renew and reflect; find greater purpose within our work; and continue to be forward-thinking, reflective, and focused on our ChickTech community. It was a joy to celebrate 10 years of impact. 

We’ll continue to celebrate, we’ll continue to serve, and we’ll continue to amplify our mission. 

Cheers to ChickTech.
