Girls in Tech is a global social network, focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of like-minded, intelligent and influential women in technology.
Who We Are
Girls in Tech Toronto launched in early 2011, and focused on connecting and advocating for women and girls in tech. We do this by hosting events, helping out with area conferences and tech events, and spotlighting awesome women and their contributions to the tech industry. We have nearly 1,000 members, and hold about 6 events per year.
What We Do
Our core programming includes the Power Hour Social. This is where 3 women have the opportunity to share their story, business venture/work and pose an “ask” to the audience. We really strive to provide a platform for both new and established early to mid career professionals to speak to an audience.
The Impact We Make
Three years, nearly 1,000 members, and over 50 women spotlighted across 12 events - everything from mixers, to hack-a-thons, to conference panels. We have worked hard to help showcase how much women in the tech field are accomplishing, because we believe there are lots of women in the industry; it's simply time we do a better job of recognizing them.
