Girls in Tech (GIT) is an non-profit organization founded in 2007 that was born out of a need to provide a place for women to cultivate ideas around their careers and business concepts involving technology. GIT focuses on the engagement, education and empowerment of like-minded, professional, intelligent and influential women in technology.
The Los Angeles Chapter of Girls in Tech, (GITLA) is 100% volunteer-run by collaborating with community partners and volunteers. They are committed to forging the next generation of technology leaders through their partner mentorship programs, that work with girls in middle school and high school, and with college women to educate and promote interest in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) disciplines.
GIT aims to offer a variety of resources including educational workshops and lectures, networking functions, round table discussions, conferences, social engagements, and recruitment events to supplement and further enhance women in their professional careers and aspirations in technology. Girls in Tech currently supports over 17,000 members spread between 37 active chapters worldwide.
