Helping people and companies to increase and harness gender diversity and inclusion within the tech industry, in order to improve the quality of products & working environments.
Women-friendly tech initiatives designed to attract women (inclusive to all genders) to the tech industry, support their transition into new roles, and promote female leadership.
Maximizing impact by focusing on applied learning, collaboration, and connecting our community with companies that promote diversity in tech.
women++ was founded in 2017 by Dr Aleksandra Sokolowska when she realised there was no female Postdoc or Professor at the Research Institute she worked for.
To tackle the phenomenon of "the leaky pipeline" and increase the number of women working in STEM, we don’t need to focus solely on promoting STEM careers amongst kids. Many adult women never got a chance to consider a tech career, and today they are curious and motivated to try.
Since then, we have designed and hosted hands-on programs focused on developing technical skills in data science, software development, UX/UI design and project management, which gives them the experience to pursue a career in the industry.
Our vision is to increase the number of women working in the tech sector by focusing on adults willing to either advance their existing careers or transition to this sector from other fields.
