Mission


Mission



Women make tech better.


But numbers show there’s a lot of work to do. 

The need for technical roles continues to grow and is expected to reach 1.4 million in 2020, yet women’s representation in computer-related occupations has declined since the 1990s.

 

Mentoring has been recognized as an effective practice to increase the representation of women in tech. 

We believe that by providing more direct support, advocacy, and community development across company boundaries, we can help more women build rewarding careers in tech.
