Our Core Values

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:​

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.


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.


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.

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.


Women in Tech has set high goals for our organization. We fully expect to reach them, and have devised primary focus areas to help girls and women enter STEAM fields and become successful in these careers.


Skilling with Education

“ I was the owner of a hostel with a 18 month baby when I applied for the Women in Tech Coding Camp in 2018. It gave me the courage to skill myself and become a front-end developer. Today I am a managing director of an IT firm in Skopje.”

Bringing water to a rural area in Zambia

Women in Tech Zambia has opened a center in a rural area 2hrs from Lusaka. Besides teaching children how to fly drones, we gave the community access to WATER, thanks to the water pipe that was installed in our premises by LIWAI. This water pipe is the first in the village of 1000 people.

Supporting Female Entrepreneurs

“I attended your WIT conference and I got connected with Deborah Crowe from the speed mentoring program. I hired her as my life and executive coach and it has changed my life. So thank you for your great initiative! .”
