Inspiring A New Generation of Women in Tech: Meet Our tech_Girl Ambassadors
Approximately 17% of the tech industry are women. At Valtech, with our Transform by Doing mindset, this stat isn’t good enough. Diversity and inclusion are integral to our work engineering experiences for everyone. A strong focus on inclusion must be on creating environments in which current and future women can thrive, regardless of background.
We created tech_Girl many years ago as part of the important work to help reach school-aged girls, teaching them the basics of coding and empowering them through inspirational, relatable and local role models from our very own teams at Valtech.
In June 2021, we ran events remotely across 14 of our offices, ensuring that regardless of the effects of the pandemic, these future women in tech still had the opportunity to explore the tech world.
In October, we will be running another series of events across our offices, reaching even more girls! Each of our events is run by a local team of women who are passionate about being a difference in this space. In this way, our women not only Transform by Doing, they also Lead by Doing.
To help kick off our next tech_Girl month, we wanted to introduce four of our mentors: Alison, Vaishali, Eliana and Adriana. We sat down with each of them and asked about the impact of tech_Girl, what being a mentor means to them and what advice they’d give to future women in tech!
