ChickTech is a multigenerational nonprofit dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers.
Bottom Line for Portland
We facilitate hands-on technology-centric events and programs to empower, support and increase the confidence of women and girls. In 2017, we provided hands-on technical workshops and career development for 288 underserved girls. We also served 1,255 women and allies attendees through our career conference and workshops.
“Before ChickTech, I thought being an engineer was something I wasn’t capable of, but my experiences taught me that I am capable, and that your background, race, gender, none of that matters.”

New Relic has committed to match the first $15,000 in donations to ChickTech to positively impact our community by increasing STEM education opportunities for underrepresented youth.
