Tech-Girls

Tech-Girls was founded in 2012 with a mission to empower girls to imagine and achieve their future dreams in our tech-savvy world. With the support of awesome volunteers and local organizations, Tech-Girls brings hands-on tech-related programming to girls throughout the region. In 2014,   Charlottesville Women in Tech was formed to provide human connections and resources for local women in tech. Tech-Girls and Charlottesville Women in Tech have now joined forces with the goal of supporting and helping women and girls begin their journey and stay in the technology pipeline.
