About High-Tech High Heels

High-Tech High Heels was founded in 2001 by 30 women from Texas Instruments with a shared vision of closing the gender gap in STEM fields. These women pooled their resources to fund programs to increase the number of girls entering into a college-level degree program in STEM. After more than two decades, HTHH continues to invest in programs that close the gender gap in STEM fields.  HTHH is expanding nationally, with chapters in North Texas and Silicon Valley and are continuing expansion efforts to Denver and South Texas.
