A message from the advisory board

Our values are not only vital, but one of the founding pillars of Women in Tech®. They guide how we approach all of our relationships—with our members, colleagues, chapters and our partners:

Collaboration: We are colleagues, not competitors, and work together for a common purpose. Our ability to collaborate on projects is one of our most important strengths. We are devoted and committed to each other, because nothing great was ever built without collaboration and teamwork.

Creativity: Real change and growth can’t occur unless we are open to considering new ideas. Fresh concepts are always welcome, and will be treated with the utmost respect.

Diversity and interculturality: We are dedicated to the idea that gender and cultural diversity matters in all spheres. We believe in a world where access to knowledge, innovation and business opportunities are based on interest and ability, not gender.

Love and positive energy: We are full of love and positive energy in and out of our work environment, and let it imbibe everything we do. Our passion for sisterhood means we love what we do and we collectively believe in the importance of the cause.

Consistency and reliability: We are consistent in our actions and set reasonable expectations. We consistently work hard and everyone you work with can depend and rely on you.
