Gender Equality in Tech (GET) Cities is an initiative designed to accelerate the representation and leadership of women, trans and non-binary people in tech through the development of inclusive tech hubs across the United States. A thriving tech economy will only exist when all of the talent in our workforce is engaged and has the opportunity to advance. We believe that national change can be accelerated when we start at the local level. Together, we can GET there. Now in Chicago, the DC Metro Area, and Miami, GET Cities will leverage collaboration across its national ecosystem of city hubs to drive positive social and economic change.
