“This is a celebration of the whole community,” said founder Tracey Welson-Rossman, who’s also chief marketing officer at Fort Washington, Pa.-based Chariot Solutions. “We could not be here without the dev community that’s been so supportive of our work. We’re so excited to be able to share this with our volunteers.”
The celebration will be broadcast live on TechGirlz’s Facebook page at 12 p.m., as participants celebrate with cake, party decorations and commemorative T-shirts.
In 2016, the organization hit global status with the org’s TechShopz in a Box program reaching as far as Paraguay, Belgium and Canada.-30-
