About TechGirlz

TechGirlz is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to reducing and, we hope, eliminating – the gender gap in technology occupations. We develop fun and educational hands-on workshops, called TechShopz, and an annual Summer Camp. These efforts aim to get middle-school age girls interested in different kinds of technology and demonstrate the varied options of careers available. We enable them to interact with professionals who have carved out successful careers in technology fields, and empower them to be future technology leaders. Looking to get involved?
