Metal Toad is proud to be a Change Maker Sponsor of the 2018 ChickTech: High School Kickoff. The weekend tech camp, the largest girls-in-technology event in Portland, will host 150 high school girls for two days of hands-on tech learning this November—paving the way for more women to thrive in the tech industry.

“It’s absolutely crucial to provide more accessibility for young women in this field,” says Donna Schultz, Metal Toad’s CMO. “This sponsorship is an important expression of our company’s values and commitment to pioneering an inclusive digital future.”

Each year, the High School Kickoff gives local girls the opportunity to learn practical tech skills, get career guidance, and find inspiration—building a diverse pipeline of technology creators for the future. It’s one of many programs that fulfill ChickTech’s mission to create a safe, inclusive, and innovative technology future that includes equal pay, participation, and treatment of women.
