Resources and Education Pathways - Next steps for Tech-Moms

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

As the Tech-Moms program is primarily a launching pad for your next steps, you will likely need more education and training (especially if you are pursuing a technical role). We have compiled a list of relevant programs at a variety of institutions, including colleges and tech colleges, boot camps, and online programs. THIS LIST IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE, and it may not be up-to-date. But it will give you some great ideas on where to start looking for your next step in getting the training and education you need.


(Please note--we are not endorsing any specific program. Please do your research to choose the program that's right for you.)
