Connecting Women in Technology

cwt 2012

Sometimes, even when we’re surrounded by our colleagues in IT,  we can feel quite isolated in the workplace and it seems to be that wherever we work our challenges are quite similar.  Recognising this, Avaya, Cisco, Dell, Google, HP, IBM, Intel and Microsoft have come together in collaboration to host cross company events for each of our women’s groups.  -

We’ve named this initiative “Connecting Women in Technology” and twice a year, we aim to get together for an afternoon of presentations, discussion and networking, with colleagues from across the IT industry.

Connecting Women in Technology is all about communication: within companies like our own internal women’s networking group, across companies, across boundaries, across geographies

We hope that this initiative can celebrate all of the great practices in each of our workplaces. We hope to give you a chance to be inspired and empowered by role models, and give you an opportunity to network with other women with in similar careers who you normally wouldn’t meet in your day job. .

If you would like to create your own ‘Connecting Women in…’ network and would like advice on how we set up and successfully manage our cross industry Connecting Women in Technology, get in touch on +44 7764 359 905 or enail me at: eileenb@amastra.co.uk

    Hi Friends- thanks for your efforts to connect women in technology! As we continue to make huuuuge strides in this country to close the gender gap, making our place in traditionally male dominated fields like technology is tantamount.

    I just wanted to reach out about an innitiative that’s near and dear to my heart- hopefully yours as well. I work for an agency that is dedicated to bridging the gender gap in education and technology in Africa. We have an innovative program that provides computer training for girls as a means of escaping poverty and creating a secure future for a seriously marginalized population.

    If anybody out there would like to learn more or to participate in our fundraising challenge between Oct 15 and Nov 15 2011 I’d love for you to peruse our website! http://www.developafrica.org/help-us-win-25000-girl-effect-challenge

    Thanks in advance- I’m so excited for any opportunity to increase our ability to provide vital computer training for impoverished girls.
