Our three city hubs each have growing tech sectors and robust entrepreneurial ecosystems as well as their own unique cultures and industries. We believe this combination within and across Chicago, DC and Miami can offer combined, representative learnings of the depth and breadth of the problems and solutions to replicate across the country for national change.
Chicago is characterized by its expanding tech sector, prestigious academic institutions, and dynamic entrepreneurial and venture ecosystems, with one in three startups helmed by women.
GET Chicago is actively building relationships with influential local organizations dedicated to enhancing, supporting, and scaling the city’s ongoing inclusivity efforts. We seek to collaborate with organizations, agencies, companies, and universities committed to narrowing the gender gap in tech—whether it’s their primary focus or a cause they’re passionate about.
Renowned as a leading tech city for women in particular, including having some of the best pay equity in the country, DC possesses the essential components for the cooperative approach required to advance gender equity in the technology sector.
The nation’s capital presents unparalleled opportunities for tech professionals in areas such as security, government, and health. Numerous influential companies and startups, spanning various sectors, have offices in Washington DC and the surrounding metropolitan area. Given the substantial efforts already underway in the city to promote equity in tech, we are confident that this presents an opportunity for accelerated impact.
Miami’s core values of inclusivity, partnership, and collaboration, combined with its rapid tech job growth, create a distinctive chance to align Miami’s tech ecosystem around equity.
As global tech giants continue to establish their presence in Miami, the city is emerging as an epicenter of diversity, striving to become one of the most inclusive tech hubs in the nation. With the increasing visibility of women in particular, investors, and workers in Miami’s tech scene, our goal is to harness this growth to expedite the representation and leadership of all marginalized genders and races.
SOUTH FLORIDA’S TECH INDUSTRY IS 2 TIMES MORE DIVERSE THAN THE U.S. TECH INDUSTRY OVERALL, IN TERMS OF GENDER AND RACE. STILL, ONLY 23% OF THE REGIONAL TECH WORKFORCE ARE WOMEN, AND 13% ARE BLACK.
