Girls in Tech, a global nonprofit working to erase the gender gap in tech, today announced that it has moved its global headquarters from Silicon Valley to Nashville. The organization was drawn to the fast-growing tech hub’s geographical, governmental, economic and social assets that continue to draw big tech companies and a strong talent pool.

Founded in 2007, Girls in Tech has grown into a global leader in the gender equality movement with a membership of 130,000+ women and allies in 50 cities, 38 countries and 6 continents. Along the way, it has become one of the most prominent voices in promoting diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) in tech and the business world as more than just something to do because it’s right, but because it also drives innovation and enhances a company’s bottom-line.

Girls in Tech has moved its global headquarters to Nashville in time for its 15th anniversary celebration next week.

The organization will celebrate its 15th anniversary next week in Nashville at its first annual conference since the pandemic’s onset. The Sept. 7th conference features a dynamic selection of speakers with inspiring stories and practical insights to share, including:

Nashville Mayor John Cooper will open the conference with welcome remarks.

We’ve received such a warm welcome from the Mayor and the Nashville business community, and it feels like the perfect place for us as tech evolves away from the ivory towers of San Francisco and into a more diverse world,” said Adriana Gascoigne, Founder and CEO, Girls in Tech.

Limited tickets are available. A full agenda and registration details for the conference can be found here.
