About Us: ChickTech- North Suburbs

ChickTech is dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of girls pursuing technology-based careers. From programming Arduinos to getting advice on technical interviewing, our programs build community, empower participants to see themselves as technologists and leaders, and provide networking and mentoring opportunities in the rapidly growing tech industry. We also work one-on-one with companies to help them create more inclusive workplace cultures.  ChickTech Chicago – North is committed to providing flexibility and convenience for women living and working in the northern suburbs community to interact with like-minded professionals from Schaumburg to Gurnee.

North suburbs is a diverse community with companies representing everything from pharmaceutical, consumer products to financial services. Our public high schools comprise of students of various educational and financial background  that don’t always view themselves as technical.  We target 50% low-income/at-risk students that may be creative, good at math and science but haven’t necessarily seen themselves in a technical role due to lack of confidence or exposure in pursuing this field.

By bringing together diverse sponsors, volunteers and students we can create a positive impact in the Chicago North suburbs community.
