"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." —Madeleine Albright
Navigating a male-dominated industry as women in tech can be difficult. Often we can find ourselves in situations where we are made to feel less heard, excluded and sometimes taken advantage of because of our gender. It is important that women in tech, and our male allies, share our collective stories, knowledge and experiences to find strategies and solutions to work towards equality and inclusion in the workplace.
FemTechTalks exists to serve as a safe space to share experiences and equip women in technology (whether that be in the corporate world or in entrepreneurship) with the tools to survive and thrive in the workplace. We are committed to improving inclusivity and diversity in the workplace and do not exclude men from the conversation. Our mission is to help:
- Build a professional tribe
- 'Power Up' others
- Career acceleration
- Enable change
'Coming together is a beginning: keeping together is progress; working together is success' - Edward Everett Hale
