What we're about

This group is for women in technology looking to meet other women in tech. ChickTech facilitates hands-on technology-centric events to empower, support, and increase the confidence of women. Through our events, we build community, empower participants to see themselves as leaders, and provide networking and mentoring opportunities in the rapidly growing high tech industry. Plus you'll have opportunities for volunteering in our High School program. ChickTech: High School is a program created to show high school girls that engineering can be fun and exciting! We’ve created a comprehensive year-long program that begins with a weekend-long event for a cohort of 100 high school girls in November. Our program is free to participants with a focus on recruiting girls from underserved communities.

ACT-W: Achieving Equity

Portland State University

ACT-W: Achieving Equity June 26-27, 2019 Portland, OR https://achievingequity.act-w.org/ Throughout our years of bringing career-advancing workshops and engaging talks to technical women and allies at our ACT-W Conferences across the country, we’ve continuously heard stories of barriers that continue to block their success. We also hear from company executives that achieving measurable Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) results can seem like an insurmountable challenge. By far, one of the most common pain points we hear is that companies and individuals want to do the right thing, but they feel stuck. That’s why we created ACT-W: Achieving Equity. This summer, we’re bringing together the brightest thinkers–and most importantly–the greatest doers in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to help you make change happen. ACT-W: Achieving Equity is a boutique event that provides action-oriented training and deep discussions to level up diversity initiatives and better enact real, measurable change. Achieving Equity is built for DEI professionals, managers, recruiters, community leaders, and allies–all people actively working to create change in their company or community–and takes an actionable approach to DEI.
