About

Founded in 2007 by Adriana Gascoigne, Girls in Tech is a nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating the gender gap in tech. We have more than 60,000 members in 50+ chapters around the world.

Girls in Tech started with an idea: There is a strong, smart and outspoken girl within all of us. We exist to make sure that girl is heard. Because when every voice, every perspective, every personality is honored and respected, we do better work and live richer lives.

At Girls in Tech Australia, we are passionate about inclusivity, because we know that tech today requires people of all skills and backgrounds. Whether you’re a data analyst, a creative, a strategist or a coder, you are needed.

We’re committed to building the diverse and inclusive tech workforce the world needs. And we aim to see every person accepted, confident and valued in tech — just as they are. So, when you’re asked how you fit into the industry, we want you to boldly say: “As I Am.”
