We share the belief that the Chicago tech community presents an excellent career opportunity for women and minorities, and that the quality of technology solutions is improved by the diversity of those doing the work. We take responsibility for helping to educate and inform these groups about career opportunities, to prepare them for careers in tech, and to introduce them to tech leaders in Chicago.
