It’s time to increase women’s presence in tech.
You might assume that women’s presence in computer science since the 1980s has increased, but the opposite is true. Today, 58 percent of all undergraduate degrees awarded in the United States go to women.
But only 1 percent of U.S. women are graduating with degrees in computer science.
Break Through Tech Chicago works at the intersection of academia and industry to increase gender diversity in the tech world by preparing more women with the college majors and minors they need to compete — and succeed — in tech. Our programs are open to women (cis and trans) and nonbinary individuals, and we are especially committed to serving Black, Latina, and Indigenous women.
