What We Do

ChickTech: Career

We hold events for women of all ages. Our goal is to keep women in STEM engaged and supported, and to help build confidence in women looking to break into a technical field. We want our event attendees to make friends, gain professional experience, and build a supportive and comforting community. Our events range from networking to hands-on workshops.

ChickTech: High School

Our high school program revolves around getting high schoolers interested in and excited about technology! We try to find girls who already demonstrate the qualities of great engineers, but who might not recognize it on their own. Learn more about ChickTech: High School.

This year, as we get our new chapter off the ground, we’re mostly focused on events for professional women. Check out what we’ve got coming up in Boston!

Join our Meetup!

We are always looking to expand our calendar of ChickTech: Career events. If you are an organization that is interested in partnering with us to create an event for women in your community, please contact us at boston@chicktech.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Why do we do it?

Women represent more than half of the overall workforce, but they hold less than a quarter of technical jobs. We know that women and girls are just as capable and motivated as men to succeed in technology and engineering fields. So what’s holding them back?

It’s a combination of things. Girls are often less encouraged than boys to pursue STEM fields because of social factors that have conditioned them to believe they wouldn’t be good at that. Nationally, there’s been a decline in the percentage of Computer Science degrees earned by women: from 37% in 1984 to less than 12% in 2011. And once women enter technology careers, they are more likely than men to leave them. We think a big part of this has to do with workplace culture and a lack of female mentors and allies. Our High School and Career programming aims to tackle these issues by creating environments where girls and women can thrive.

Sponsors and Partners

We need more talented, driven women in technology fields.
