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.
