Women in Tech

 

NC proudly ranks as the #1 state in the nation with the highest percentage of women in technology. 

While North Carolina has ranked #1 in the percentage of women in the tech workforce for the past three years, there is still plenty of room for more women in these roles.  With thousands of technology jobs to be filled across the state, women could play a critical role in the future of the tech sector in the state.

NC TECH has created a network to recognize, support and encourage women to pursue STEM careers.  The goals of this network are to provide:  

  1. Programs as an educational outlet for women to gain more insights
  2. Forums to connect + network
  3. Spotlights on dynamic women tech leaders.  All are welcome join the network! 

PROGRAMS

NC TECH will host programs + networking opportunities throughout the year.
