What we're about

Founded in 2012, WATT International encourages women in technology to be fearless as they advance their careers, providing education, inspiration, guidance and connections to career opportunities.

Our Mission:

• to encourage women to be fearless in sharing their unique perspectives and talents;

• to encourage men to take an active role in this culture shift that will create inclusive, supportive environments where both women and men can thrive;

• to encourage more women and girls to enter and advance to leadership roles in technology related fields;

• to change the status quo through education, collaboration and inclusion;

• to assist companies in attracting, hiring, and retaining top female talent

• to positively impact our communities, organizations and global society by bringing a more diverse, balanced perspective to products, services and policies.

It's now 2020! We have grown from about 200 Meetup members in 2014 to over 1200 today. While our community is global (including events in the Caribbean, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Bangladesh and more), most of our face-to-face events have been concentrated around Dallas, Texas. We are planning moreFor 2020, we are expanding our presence with live meetups in a city near you. If you'd like to collaborate with the WATT organization to host an event in your area.

Events include:

Mentor Meetups - Here unique perspectives from experienced Women in Tech on topics that matter to you. Most will be face-to-face and broadcast as a webinar for greater participation. They will also be recorded (when possible) for later viewing.

Career Connections Networking Events - Meet to share job, training and professional development opportunities. These meetups can be simple Happy Hours, company sponsored recruiting events, or other activities where the group has an interest.

Education/Training - WATT hosts education on Communications, Negotiations, Business Skills; We will also open up our calendar to share other technical training opportunities offered through universities, professional organizations, or other Meetup groups.

Let's do the best we can and Meetup virtually to talk about what's on your mind in the face of our current medical and economic crisis. For many of us, we're used to having the option of working from home or anywhere. We still get stir crazy and crave company after a few days (or a few hours for some). Let's Zoom and share video so that we feel more connected. Connecting and creating or maintaining a team culture when everyone is remote is actually a great topic on a regular day and even more important now. We'll start by sharing some tips we've learned along the way and then dive into addressing some common challenges as a group. We can structure the talks in future weeks if the group decides to go deep in a particular direction (Influence, Negotiation, Healthy Conflict, Team Dynamics, etc.) We'll let everyone's day wind down a bit, so that we can relax and enjoy our conversation. Get cozy with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and have a little chat. The Zoom ID will remain the same for the event series, recurring weekly.
