What we're about

Women Tech Leaders is advancing women leaders in the tech industry by providing strength and solidarity to individuals through our community in order to ameliorate tech culture.

We are a peer group for women* in technology companies who are managing people and/or leading teams.

Tech leadership can be exhausting and confusing but it's also rewarding and stimulating. Let's learn from each other so we can grow faster and develop our own squads and a larger community! We'll get together to hear prominent and experienced women in tech leadership talk about their experiences and we'll meet to listen to and mentor each other in small groups.

*We are open to people who identify as women.
