Philly Nonprofit Providing Tech Workshops For Girls Expands To Delaware

We’re excited to share that TechGirlz will soon be expanding their operations to Delaware. The program is currently a nonprofit based in Philadelphia that focuses on providing free tech workshops to middle-school girls. With Delaware’s prevalence of financial companies, the program will be including fintech training as well to offer the most relevant curriculum possible. 

“As Delaware’s financial technology industry continues to grow, this partnership will help inspire a future workforce of diversified talent that will make our state and its innovative companies even more competitive,” said Meghan Wallace, cofounder of First State Fintech Lab, in a statement. “By engaging early with young women and providing them with a path to rewarding careers in the fintech industry, we can build a more diverse financial services ecosystem while providing our girls with greater access and opportunities.”

TechGirlz workshops across the country focus on various STEM topics, including robotics, gaming, digital design and podcasting. The new Delaware program, slated to launch in the first half of 2020, will add fintech to the list, with workshops that teach both technology training and financial literacy education.
