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 STEM fields and become successful in these careers.
Women in Tech® has a double mission: to close the gender gap and to help women embrace technology. The organization focuses on 4 primary areas that are a call for action: Education, Business, Social Inclusion, Advocacy. The aim is to educate, equip and empower women and girls with the necessary skills and confidence to succeed in STEM career fields.
Our goal is to Empower 5 million Women and Girls by 2030.
