The F Factor
The F Factor is a different kind of community group. Our purpose is to be a holistic support network for the entire duration of our members' technology careers. We want to see more women making it into technology leadership and less women exciting careers in tech mid-career.
The Techgirls Competition is an annual program that changes the way girls perceive and engage in STEM.
