Technology to EMPOWER
TECH-Nique uses academic research to provide technology education for the purpose of empowering the communities of underrepresented groups in computer science. We think of technology first as a powerful tool to strengthen and empower our communities, and then as a byproduct, a job skill. Our programs incorporate leadership development, project management, collaboration, creativity, and design with curriculum in data analytics, software development, digital marketing, and UX design for app development. While we welcome all demographics to our programs, our design and methodology is specifically framed around what increases sense of belonging, self-efficacy, and hence, participation, of young adult women of color in computer science.
