ABOUT GIRLS IN TECH (per the GIT website):
Since its inception in February 2007, Girls in Tech’s main focus is empowering, educating and elevating the status of women in the technology field. Local Girls in Tech chapters engage the local community of women in the technology industry, as well as highlight the specific industry concerns in each geographic region.
The NYC chapter of Girls in Tech seeks to enrich the experience of women in technology in the New York metro area, helping them to make connections, learn valuable career and life skills, and, above all, have FUN with other like-minded women in the thriving New York tech community.

The Takeover 12

Tomorrow is a big day for the Lux Team. We have a photoshoot and interview with Georgette Cline an Editor/Writer in the entertainment industry (Editor with Rap-Up.com & Rap-Up magazine/writer for XXL, GIANT magazine). Georgette has launched a new blog titled LuxLadies.com. Per Georgette:

The blog is a place to feature women, inspire women, talk about products and projects for women, and just be a place where women can go to be informed of something new and refreshing, whether it be entertainment, music, lifestyle and more.

The first project is titled "The Takeover Twelve" or TTT. Per Georgette the concept behind TTT will be:

...to highlight 12 women who are successful in their respective careers and shine a light on what they do.
Check out the blog here. We will announce when the Lux interview and photoshoot is up!
