A NextUp Partner



NextUp partners with TechGirlz to reduce the gender gap in technology occupations. TechGirlz develops fun and educational hands on workshops, called TechShopz, and an annual Entrepreneur Summer Camp. These efforts aim to get middle-school girls interested in different kinds of technology and demonstrate the varied options of careers available.


TechGirlz enables girls to interact with professionals who have carved out successful careers in technology fields and empower them to be future technology leaders. TechGirlz has reached more than 10,000 girls and is racing to reach 20,000 girls by 2020. Help their campaign to reach this huge milestone.

IT pros who wish to volunteer with TechGirlz can sign up here.


CompTIA members and IT pros in the greater Chicago area who wish to volunteer can contact Joan Matz.
