Gender Equality in Tech (GET) Cities is launching its third hub in Miami, where it will collaborate with local stakeholders to bring more women and other underrepresented groups into technology careers and leadership roles.
If the name of the organization sounds somewhat familiar, it might be because the National Director is Leslie Lynn Smith, founding President and Chief Executive Officer of Epicenter in Memphis. The initiative to bring more women and other underrepresented groups into technology careers and leadership roles is led by the SecondMuse Foundation and Break Through Tech in partnership with Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda French Gates.
GET Cities, which launched in 2020, already has programs in Chicago and Washington, DC. Smith said adding Miami as the organization’s third city will help the group develop a collective body of insight and best practices that can be applied to other large metro areas.
