G.R.O.W. (Gaining Real Opportunities at Will)
G.R.O.W. is a Google.org-supported program that will focus on:
- Career Readiness
- Salary Negotiation Skills
- Interview Readiness
- Mock Interviews from Tech Recruiters
- Resume Building Skills & So Much More
G.R.O.W. will meet our people where they are and give them tools to be their very best when looking for a new career or even building skills in their current career. This program will serve our members from a holistic perspective.
Empower everyone in the transgender community, while still unapologetically centering the voices and experiences of Black transgender women who are or were engaged in sex work. G.R.O.W. seeks to reach those in our community who are within the margins and often not centered in career readiness programs.
No matter where you are in your career field, educational background, or even if you’re just looking for a place where personal growth and community intersect, you can G.R.O.W. with TransTech!
Member Skill Share
If you’ve ever attended our Summit you know that our members are incredibly talented. Now we’re giving our members more opportunities to learn and share what they’ve learned with the community. We’re hosting monthly virtual workshops designed by our members, for our members. We believe in having our members see themselves on the learning side and the teaching side; a space where representation matters in order to truly excel.
Themes of the month are chosen based on the topics of proposals submitted, as well as the areas of focus most pertinent to our member base.
All of our members gain access to our library of educational video content. This includes all presentations from past Summit events and past Member Skill Share presentations. There are over 100 videos on a wide range of topics, including:
- Starting a career in tech
- Project management
- Accessibility Design
- Virtual public speaking
In addition, we also have a block of free LinkedIn Learning accounts for our membership. LinkedIn Learning has video tutorials taught by industry leaders in almost every industry imaginable, allowing our members to pursue whatever career path they’re interested in. LinkedIn Learning also includes certification programs that appear on your LinkedIn profile once completed.
The TransTech Summit was specifically created for the most marginalized members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Created by members of the community, for the community, to help lift up our communities through education and employment.
But more importantly, TransTech provides a concentrated effort to economically empower the transgender and gender non-conforming community, creating role models along the way for those on a similar journey.
The TransTech Summit aims to provide attendees with the tools to bolster their existing careers, interact with new media technology, network with other LGBTQIA+ people, learn new skills, and access additional training tools.
Upcoming Summit Dates: Friday, March 31 – Sunday, April 2, 2023
