Girls in Tech is bringing the excitement and magic of Una Noche de Elegancia, straight to San Francisco! It all happens on Friday, November 16, 2018, at our third annual fundraising gala, an exclusive evening designed to reflect on our accomplishments throughout the year, ramp up for the future, and recognize some incredible leadership in technology.
Every single dollar raised from this event goes to support Girls in Tech’s innovative programming around the globe. Girls in Tech—now more than 60,000 members strong, across 60 chapters—exists solely to empowering women in STEM careers. We do this by creating a global support framework for women at all levels of their career, arming them with the information, the skills and the confidence they need to break down walls. Our innovative coding camps, educational boot camps and conferences are recognized around the world for their world-class caliber and ability to include women from every background.
And today, our work matters more than ever. Women in 2018, even in America, are still struggling to advance in a deeply polarized political climate. Women are harassed daily, we are discriminated against daily, we’re overlooked daily. We’re fighting not just one person or company for a level playing field, but deeply ingrained societal expectations. Events like The Girls in Tech Fundraising Gala offer a path to celebrate our achievements throughout the year but also to generate funds for making an even greater difference in 2019. One magical evening. A year of progress.
Formal attire is preferred.
Here’s what attendees can expect from Una Noche de Elegancia: 3-course Mexican fine dining experience, lively Mariachi band, Mexican Folkloric dance performers, open bar, dancing, photo booth, and a dynamic live auction. It’s an evening where some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley join forces to create change, starting with Girls in Tech.
The evening also serves to recognize luminary women in tech. Our honorees for Entrepreneur of the year, Innovator of the year and Philanthropist of the year will be announced within one month of selection and will be invited to receive the award at the annual Girls in Tech Gala Fundraiser & Award Ceremony on November 16, 2018. These women have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and have achieved jaw-dropping accomplishments throughout their careers, helping to pave the path for the next generation of women in tech. We’re incredibly grateful for their leadership and support.
