We are looking for a Event/Logistics Manager for the Austin chapter of ChickTech . This volunteer role would be responsible for obtaining an event location for any upcoming events (kickoff, workshop, mentor match, etc.) and coordinating any logistics necessary to ensure the event runs smoothly. Other logistics include getting our students to/from the venue, ensuring they are fed while they are there, and making sure they have all the equipment they need.
Our ideal candidate will have:
Key responsibilities include:
Expected time commitment: 5-10 hours/week (more during High School Kickoff season). This includes checking your ChickTech email at least three times a week to ensure that potential volunteers are not waiting for communication.
We ask that all leadership team members commit to one year of being on the team if possible, although less can be negotiated! Please be honest about your time commitments, while we realize it is difficult to forecast what you may be doing four or five months out, we ask potential leadership team members to try their best to upfront with any conflicts, either work or personal.

ChickTech is dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers.
ChickTech: High School
revolves around creating events that will get high schoolers interested and excited about technology. These events pose some interesting challenges, as we expect that most of our participants have never had a chance to do anything like what we are offering. Our goal is to reach the girls who would make great engineers, but because of stereotypes and a lack of opportunity, may not realize it until they are already doing something else, if at all. We also strive to show the relevance of each workshop to their lives-and help them to understand that they have the ability to transform the tech industry!
is for women of all ages (and careers!). We believe our events will help to keep women engaged if they are already in high tech, give them confidence if they were thinking about going into high tech, and help them to create a great network of intelligent, amazing women just like themselves. The events range from networking to hands-on workshops, with most of our events falling in the latter category.
We'll work with your schedule.
