In Y-WE Tech, young women, trans, non-binary, and gender expansive youth ages 13–19 explore ways to use technology tools for learning, career success, self-expression, social change and the history of women and femmes in technology. Within an intergenerational community of diverse youth and adult femme mentors, we get hands-on with hardware and software, develop college and career readiness (while being critical about what that means), grow as leaders, and discover ways we can use technology to make a difference in our world. Free to attend!

[Y-WE Tech] helped me realize that there are faces behind technology and organizations. It helped me see that I could be just like them and be successful in STEM if I want to.
