Girls in Tech’s Annual Gala on November 15, 2019 is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Our most critical and highly-anticipated annual event joins all those who care about women’s empowerment in an exciting evening featuring live entertainment, fine dining, and networking.
Why is Girls in Tech’s Fundraising Gala so significant? Because it changes lives. It’s a special evening that gathers a bit of everything — giving, celebrating, and connecting.
We give by investing every single dollar raised in Girls in Tech’s innovative programming to help women around the world receive skills-based education, a support community, access to sponsors, and more.
We celebrate 13 years of empowering the leaders of tomorrow as well as the exceptional achievements of women leaders who are paving the way for the next generation of girls and women in STEM.
We connect with each other, united by the same mission: to support women with the education and community they need to succeed in tech and business.
They Are Changing the World. We Empower Them.
We are truly excited to share that, to date, Girls in Tech has made a positive impact on over 230,000 women, across 47 chapters, in 33 countries, and 6 continents, and we’re still going strong! But we couldn’t do it without the support of dedicated advocates like you.
Perhaps, the best way to convey our true impact is to tell you the stories of just some of the fearless, passionate, and bright changemakers who are making the world better. This is how your support is transforming the lives of others.

Using Tinkercad, she designed a token to represent the Society of Women Engineers in Jakarta and encourage girls to choose STEM studies and careers — fields that are still considered unsuitable for women in Indonesia. Jane is actively involved with Girls in Tech’s community in Jakarta. She even led a workshop entitled Tech Littlebits: A Lively Introduction to Electronics.

“This award offers us the chance to fly to Singapore and meet with strategic business contacts there. Since we’ve already received several client requests from Singapore, we believe that this is a unique opportunity to expand our business to Southeast Asia!”
