Our Story

Since 2012, ChickTech has reached 35,000 people and counting. We empower our multi-generational community to see themselves as leaders by providing networking, professional development and mentoring opportunities.

Although our primary focus is the tech industry, we aim to increase the number of women and gender-diverse people who aspire to join the big beautiful world of STEM, while creating a strong sense of belonging and support to keep them there. 

Mission

ChickTech is dedicated to advancing diversity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by increasing retention and building the pipeline of underrepresented technologists, with a focus on women, girls, and gender diverse people of all ages.

Vision

ChickTech envisions a future where all people—regardless of gender expression, racial identity, disability, age, or amount of experience in tech—feel welcome and empowered in an inclusive STEM community.

Our Programs

Through mentorship and professional development, ChickTech programs are designed to create a safe space to learn and connect participants to a supportive multi-generational community.

At the root of everything we do, our core values guide our leadership team day in and day out as we plan and execute our programs and operations.

Advocate for Belonging

Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. We celebrate diversity, build equity, and facilitate inclusion in all that we do.

Innovate Through Collaboration

We work hand-in-hand with volunteers, participants, funders, and partner organizations. Our collaborative spirit helps us find and implement innovative solutions to further our mission.

Consciously Evolve

We proactively and thoughtfully adapt and refine our approach, language, and program offerings to meet the needs of the communities we serve.

Prioritize Connection

We know that camaraderie and solidarity can be the spark that ignites systemic change. We strive to make a difference in the lives of others by facilitating meaningful connections.

Amplify Our Community

We listen to those that have been historically marginalized and ensure all voices are heard. We promote the work and stories of diverse, innovative people in STEM, knowing that representation matters.
