ChickTech’s Impact Around the World
Since 2012, ChickTech has aimed to bring inclusive, free & low-cost, and empowering technology education and community connections to people of marginalized genders around the world. We believe that every girl, woman, and non-binary person of any age deserves access to high-quality programming that helps them realize their dreams in STEM.
ChickTech is proud to have served people of all genders in more than 25 cities, and more than 30 states across the U.S. And since the introduction of virtual programming in early 2020, we’ve expanded to serving participants in more than 15 countries, including Canada, Mexico, India, Germany, Nigeria, Australia, Japan, and Brazil.
