Greater Than Tech is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping create the next generation of innovative technology leaders
by introducing girls and underserved students to immersive educational programs at the intersection of STEM and business.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE STEM ORGANIZATION
Greater Than Tech (GTT) is reaching to levels beyond STEM to build the next generation of diverse technology business leaders. We instill the importance of self-efficacy, STEM entrepreneurship and social impact in all our programming. We provide the following components for all our students to have the confidence to define their own path in tech:
Black and Hispanic students earn fewer than 19% of STEM bachelor's degrees.
Fewer than 1% of and .5% of leadership positions in tech are held by Latinx and Black women respectively.
In the U.S., women of color make up just 4% of small business technology leaders.
What's The Uncommon? What's The Uncommon?
Oftentimes, women of color in tech spaces and especially in technical leadership positions are considered “unicorns”. We want to dispel that fairytale!
Let’s normalize women of color in tech instead of further isolating them.
GTT offers a variety of programming
We teach technology and business together.

We are always in need of volunteers.

TAKING TECH TRAINING INTO
OUR OWN HANDS
A handful of entry-level data analysts is just a drop in the talent bucket, even for most mid-size companies with an average IT footprint. But, in a tight market for tech workers, every little bit helps.

“My daughter enjoyed Girl Meets Drone. She was delighted to work with girls just like her who had an interest in coding. The program gave her the opportunity to apply the coding skills she had in a practical business environment. She was also surprised to see how coding related to drones.
She now believes she can build a business as well as an engineering career. The GTT team put together an excellent program that shows our girls a pathway to not just thinking about solutions but innovating and executing them as well. I look forward to signing up for the next one."
