The Future is NOW Gala

November 15, 2019

Girls for Technology invites you to our inaugural fundraising gala, The Future is NOW, on November 15 at Hartford Marriott Downtown. With your support, achieving our goal of $100,000 will be in reach and in turn, our programs, opportunities and support will reach 2,000 future innovators and beyond!

Corporate sponsorship is also available, and an incredible opportunity for your company at a financial, philanthropic, and community level.

Watch our girls succeed and take pride in knowing your organization made it possible.

Special Guest Speaker

Our special guest speaker is Jasmine Lawrence, an engineer and entrepreneur that is currently serving as a technical program manager on the Portal (formerly Building 8) team at Facebook. The team is building products that make it easier for people to connect with the ones they love.

Previously, she served as a technical program manager at SoftBank Robotics America where she led a multidisciplinary team to create software for social humanoid robots. Her resume also includes Microsoft, with degrees from George Institute of Technology and University of Washington. 

An entrepreneur since age 13, we are excited to welcome her to the stage!
