Vanessa Vallely, Founder of WeAreTechWomen said “I have wanted to launch a website and platform for women in tech for number of years. The launch of WeAreTechWomen.com is a natural evolution for WeAreTheCity given our passion to progress women in industry, and the success of our WeAreTechWomen conference and TechWomen100 awards.”
“My vision was to provide a one stop shop of available resources for women working in tech who want to progress their careers. I wanted our platform to link in to lots of different organisations, not for profits and individuals who were all doing amazing things to progress the careers of women in tech. No platform existed that provided visibility of all women in tech resources in one single place, so we created it! I hope that our new website and platform hits the spot and eliminates hours of googling for female technologist who are seeking both inspiration and sign posting to organisations who can help them grow their careers. I am very excited to watch the site grow and look forward to engaging with future partners and our growing WeAreTechWomen community.”
The site contains over 50 links to other organisations, all of which are doing phenomenal things to help women in tech thrive. It is an exciting time to be a female technologist as so many organisations are focused on achieving gender parity within the industry. We are very honoured to be able to feature all of these initiatives on one platform and would like to sincerely thank all of our partners and contributors for helping us to make the WeAreTechWomen platform a reality.
