What happens when you gather gutsy, inspiring high-school females in one place, at one time to enhance their diverse passions in law, politics, social-good, art, economics, business with technology? Magic.
Come do exactly that! GirlCon is a Chicago-based event taking place at Northwestern University to encourage middle and high school girls to pursue their goals. GirlCon will have various workshops throughout the day that illustrate how technology is ingrained into every field. This event will be focusing on how technology plays a large role in EVERY field. The lack of women in tech is a big issue that everyone on the GirlCon team is striving to fix. Our goal is to provide girls with connections to successful women in their choice career field: we want every girl to feel empowered to reach her potential!
Come for food, free swag, connecting, learning, and be ready to be launched into your field of passion!
