Girls in Tech Milwaukee - PreLaunch Meetup

 

 

 

 

Girls in Tech (GIT) is a global organization with a mission of providing educational, networking and mentorship activities to increase the number of girls and women interested in technology, computer science, engineering, product marketing, design, digital media and entrepreneurship.

With the talent in Milwaukee, we're launching a local GIT chapter focused on promoting opportunity awareness, education and empowerment of women both involved and interested in technology careers in southeastern Wisconsin.

Our goal is to focus initiatives on promoting collaboration and mentoring, as well as developing exposure and education opportunities in the technology and entrepreneurship arenas. Some of these resources include educational workshops and lectures, round table discussions, social engagements and recruiting events.

Please join us as we have an open discussion and brainstorming session on where the gaps are in Milwaukee and how we can engage more women and girls in the technology space.

    I think this is an awesome group. Since the 80's there is definitely a DECLINE in women in STEM careers. I know if it wasn't for STEM programs when I was a teen I wouldn't be here. I'm looking to give back to next generation of girls.

      Thanks for the comment LD... it is a definite problem, and a big need. So excited to have you involved... looking forward to talking more!

    Interesting meetup. I actually had a discussion with some colleagues about the lack of women in STEM, and the (possible) decline of young people interested in STEM in general.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
