It is time to think about the gender gap in technology in a new way. The representation of women in computer science and engineering has been declining over the last three decades. It's time for something new.
Global Tech Women, founded in 2012, believes the solution to this persistent problem is to focus on the needs of individual technical women on a personal and professional level – providing them with consistent support from their freshman year to their entry in the workforce, their first and subsequent promotions, and their successful retirement.
Our goals are to:
1. Decrease isolation, provide role models, and create consistent support structures.
2. Create a goal-oriented network because technical women are all as unique as they are spectacular. What works for me may not work for you.
3. Provide each woman with a roadmap for personal advancement and career objectives based on her own definition of success.
Our name is Global Tech Women and our mission is to create a global network of inspired, connected and self-actualized technical women.
