Students: Academic Support and Industry Experience
Your future in tech starts here.
Break Through Tech is for all women in tech.
Beyond gender, we recognize that additional institutional barriers to access exist for specific groups — such as Black, Latina, Indigenous, low-income, and first-generation undergraduate college women and students with marginalized gender identities — and seek to elevate their voices and grow their numbers within the tech community.
Through academic and professional opportunities, we help people find a path to a future in tech.
