Our Primary Focus areas

Data collected by a virtual event solutions company “Evia” found that today, women make up less than 20% of the technology workforce – even though they make up more than half the workforce in many countries.
Women in tech are struggling to unlock the full potential of this innovative industry. With problems like wage gaps, harassment, and a consistent lack of support to contend with, we believe that it’s time to help and celebrate those who are paving the way forward for women in tech. After all, women-led technology companies perform up to 3 times better than those with a male CEO.

To help more women find their way into the technology industry, and thrive in their chosen roles, we’re focusing on four primary action areas – the details of which you can find below.
