Gateways For Future Women In Tech At This Year’s “STEM For Her”

“STEM For Her” 2024
ChaTech Council

Women are the majority of the population here in Chattanooga - but less than a quarter of the city’s IT workforce.

On Saturday, the Chattanooga Technology Council - or ChaTech - hosts this year’s “STEM for Her,” starting at 8 AM at the Gerald McCormick Center at Chattanooga State Community College.

The day of interactive activities and hands-on experiences for 6th to 12th grade female students aims to stir the passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics - or STEM - in young girls.

Austin Corcoran is ChaTech’s executive director.

Chantee Boykin is senior manager of IT at EPB.
