Girls in Tech Summit
The Girls in Tech Summit is a celebration of TechGirlz’s 10th Anniversary with talks on technology given by girls, for girls.
TechGirlz was founded in 2010 and offers free, fun, interactive “TechShopz” led by industry professionals, leaders and students. The TechGirlz mission is to inspire middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. The Girls in Tech Summit celebrates a decade with this incredible organization and the accomplishments of the many innovative and enterprising girls in the TechGirlz community today.
Attendees will be middle and high school girls with an interest in tech and entrepreneurship in technology. They want to hear from other TechGirlz on topics that will help them grow their skills, expand their knowledge, and inspire their future careers.
Our speakers will be exclusively middle and high school girls sharing what they have learned and built in the realm of technology on topics ranging from technology entrepreneurship, fun and games, and how it works deep dives. The goal is to inspire other TechGirlz and celebrate all of their incredible accomplishments together.
The Girls in Tech Summit was inspired by the Women in Tech Summit, an event that has brought together women in tech for the last seven years. WITS has grown beyond a single event into five nation-wide annual conferences and into a community of innovators and leaders networked across many industries. I have had the privilege of standing on stage at WITS several times and sharing my expertise and experience with others. I have also attended every WITS here in the Northeast and have benefitted tremendously by listening to and meeting with my peers and people I look up to in the tech industry.
TechGirlz are the Women in Tech of tomorrow and we should all be excited about the innovation, creativity, and passion they will bring. It was my hope to give the girls in the equally impressive TechGirlz community an opportunity to gather and celebrate being part of ten years of accomplishments, to speak to and hear from others just like them.
