Event Description

Tracey Welson-Rossman is our speaker

Tracey as the Marketing Director for Chariot Solutions is just her day job.  Her passion led her to create TechGirlz in 2010 that we at AgilePhilly have long promoted.

Now her "Business Model" of a local Non-Profit has evolved enough to be an take-over  / acquisition.

Join us as we get an inside look at what the Philadelphia market has become, and how you as a technology person who probably works on open source and other volunteer activities should see Philadelphia.

HEADLINE: TechGirlz will stay in Philly, only now as part of Chicago-based charity Creating IT Futures.

Here's why CEO Tracey Welson-Rossman sees this as a win for the organization's cause.

Tues Nov 12  ( day after Veterans Day )


Tues Nov 5


Tues Dec 17th


but we are flexible on any dates.   There is nothing special about Tuesday evenings.



 Questions for our Interview:

I think doing it later in the year  would give you time to absorb the changes and have some time to reflect on how your role has changed ( or not ) – and how your outreach has changed ( or not ) – and other concerns.  We could make it an interview – style , or panel with other TechGirlz Directors if you wish.


This is especially poignant for me, as I will be retiring from work in the year 2020 – and I would like the AgilePhilly members to think about what kind of organization they want to see when their “Benevolent Dictator” finally steps down.  We all know that the cold hand of Retirement always beckons at the end of our journey of learning.


This is part of our annual Giving Back to the Community events that come every Christmas / December
