Through our volunteering initiative PE Cares, Productive Edge hosted a TechGirlz workshop on Friday, July 8th at our Chicago headquarters. TechGirlz is an organization for middle school girls to learn technology skills and explore technology topics to empower their future careers through free interactive workshops led by industry professionals.

“I love the idea of getting women started in technology at a young age and showing them that it could be a great career path for them in the future,” said Chase Schneider, a co-leader of the workshop.

Seven employees volunteered during the You Can Code workshop with 14 TechGirlz participants. The company provides paid Volunteer Time Off as a benefit to encourage employees to volunteer in their communities and with causes they care about.
