What originally started as a forum for women who were active and passionate about technology and it's powers to change our lives, and the world, quickly became so much more. Since December 2011, NYTechWomen has been changing the environment for women in NYC, but it quickly became incredibly clear that the environment needed to change for women outside of NYC as well. For many mid-career women, technical literacy is not a given, but great minds are. What if city-based resources were taken to rural areas? Would women find a new self they never new existed? Would women open new doors they never thought possible? Would women transform from consumers to creators?
