The 2021 Women in Tech: Finding Your Path event will virtually convene business leaders and high school girls for an afternoon of mentoring and community!
Please save the date to join us for a virtual Fireside Chat and Mentoring Session to learn about what it takes to have a career in tech.

Every day at The Tech
Professional Development for Educators
Teachers are key influencers in a young woman’s attitude about STEM. The Tech provides professional development workshops for teachers through The Bowers Institute. We help educators become aware of gender bias in the classroom and equip them with tools to support equitable teaching practices.
Designing for Inclusion
The Tech strives to provide programs, exhibits and experiences that are designed to engage audiences who are underrepresented in STEM education and careers. Our staff members are versed in current research on education, conduct program testing with diverse audiences and hold equity in design as a core development concept.
Adding a Why
Research shows that engineering, computer science and other STEM careers are more appealing when young women see them as tools for solving a problem they care about. Through programs like The Tech for Global Good and partnerships with organizations like the Girl Scouts, The Tech provides girls with opportunities to develop their own solutions to some of the toughest challenges facing our planet.
