Meet Anika, our social entrepreneur intern and 2020 #wintern from Queens College CUNY! She’s a talented UIX designer and was part of creating our soon to release MSC App. We can’t wait to see her design the career she loves! #mysocialcanvas #breakthroughtech #witny #winternship
So grateful to Mark Harris and @DiscoveryDPI for giving me the chance to talk to the next generation of leaders in tech in Chicago! Check out @BreakThroughCHI programs rolling out at UIC to propel more women into tech careers. @CHANCE_UIC #breakthroughtech @cornell_tech
Judith gave an inspiring talk about her path from a speech and language specialist to CIO of Verizon, and stressed why diverse voices are so important to be at the table within artificial intelligence.

You don’t need to know anything about computers to participate in our first (free!) Summer Guild program. Starts August 12 and runs for five weekdays. Work together to apply technology to the problem of food insecurity. Use your UIC login here:
"I know that when we build teams to solve problems, to design products & systems, that those teams are most effective and most successful when they're diverse."
Hear more from @UICCS's Professor Shanon Reckinger on #GETChicago's plan for diversity driving success 👏🏼👏🏾👏🏿
The tech industry must prioritize equity. NOW.

In a tech sector already grappling with inequities, #COVID19 threatens gains we’ve made for #WOC. Read more in @FastCompany about how these barriers show up and how we can overcome them with strategies from orgs like @collegefund and #BreakThroughTech:
I would *not* be here without WiTNY (now #BreakThroughTech) and @drjspitz. In undergrad I wanted to be in tech but almost didn't bc I constantly doubted myself. I joined a WiTNY python class & internship program that boosted my skills & confidence 10x. Now I'm a CS masters! (🤯)
Fun fact: @RinaS was part of the first class #BreakThroughTech (then WiTNY) piloted at @CUNY @macaulayhonors. This is such a beautiful piece about her @cornell_tech experience & makes me ache for campus life. Rina, it was so fun to run into you on campus & I miss you! @drjspitz
Born out of the mission of Cornell Tech, Break Through Tech works at the intersection of education, impact, innovation, and industry collaboration to achieve gender equality in tech.
