Many women in the tech industry claim that some of the reasons they leave is due to gender and racial discrimination both inside the classroom and while working in the field. Many express the need for empowering educational experiences and new pathways into the tech industry that celebrates girls and gender expansive youth and the diverse communities they come from.

Our work is possible because of our programmatic or financial support from community partners globally.
We are only able to serve our youth because of the community networks that support us. Our memberships help us maintain best practices within and outside of our organization. They also provide a way for us to share resources with other community members and organizations who need it.
Khalia Braswell was hooked on technology as soon as she received her first computer from her mother. She loves tech so much that she enrolled in a tech-focused public high school. Khalia went on to complete an undergraduate program in computer science and a masters program in information technology.
In 2014, Khalia launched INTech Camp for Girls as a side project to lift Black and Latina girls up to be a part of the next generation of technologists, showing them all the opportunities available to them. Since 2014, INTech has grown to serve 1500+ youth in 22 states around America, Canada, and South America.
