CEO & Founder
Janice has a BS in Computer Engineering from Oregon State University and an MBA from Willamette University. She believes strongly that the diversity and strengths that women bring will push technology to even more impressive heights. Her inspiration for creating ChickTech came from her own experiences in computer engineering and the realization that the percentage of women in engineering isn’t going to get higher by itself.
ChickTech is an international organization serving thousands of girls and women every year through tech programs and events. ChickTech was founded in 2012 to engage women and girls of all ages in the technology industry while working to create a better technology culture for all. We're currently in 27 cities and are continuing to grow. Our programs include summer camps, ChickTech: High School, Meetup groups for adults in tech, and ACT-W Conferences. Wherever possible, we partner with other organizations to expand our impact because it takes the world working together to change the world!
