Started in San Francisco circa 2007, Girls in Tech is a global social network enterprise focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of like-minded, professional, intelligent and influential women in technology.
In addition to ramping-up events this spring/summer and growing their membership to 450+, the local chapter recently added three new volunteer board members:
Bobbilee Hartman – GITMSP Web Director
“I know how hard it is to get started as a beginner in this industry so I want to help break down those barriers for women, more specifically women coming from non-traditional cs backgrounds.”
Alex Ryan – GITMSP Director of Operations
Alex is a Testing Director for the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program, University of Minnesota and 2012 Minne* volunteer Catalyst of the Year.
“I’m excited to serve our community and help GITMSP connect girls in tech and girls interested in tech with fun, educational, and inspiring opportunities.”
Logain Asfour – GITMSP Sponsorship Director
Logain just graduated from the University of Minnesota with a CS degree and will be joining Target’s Technology Leadership Program.
“I think that support for more girls to enter into the computer science field is absolutely necessary.”
“There has been a lot of transition on the Girls in Tech Board over the last few months and our new board members all have heart and passion for our mission. They come from different backgrounds and different levels of experience — It’s going to be a terrific year for us,” Agnew says regarding the trio.
