TechWomen|TechGirls is a NH High Tech Council initiative focused on building a strong community of female professionals enthusiastic about technology and also supporting efforts where girls are exploring STEM as a career or area of study. TechWomen|TechGirls holds programs for professional women to connect, educate, and explore ideas around career development, technology initiatives, and innovation. The community also deploys volunteers and mentors to support academic STEM initiatives and events for girls happening all over New Hampshire.
At this annual event, a luminary keynote speaker addresses a dynamic crowd of approximately 250 female technologists, entrepreneurs and business leaders as the Council honors the “TechWoman” of the Year, “TechEducator” of the Year and “TechStudent of the Year.” For more information, please contact chair Shannon Hermann, email@example.com.
Girls’ Technology Day
The Council partners with State of NH Department of Education in their annual three day, three site, state-wide event that brings together 800 young women in 9th and 10th grade from 35 NH schools in an effort to showcase the many high tech field career paths and the ways in which career and technical education can help in the exploration of the possibilities. Last year the event included 95 presenters, 50 workshops, 48 tech company displays and 75 tech women volunteers.
TechWomen Ambassador Week
