About WiTech

“WiTech is a Network Created by Women for Women”

The network wants to raise awareness of the possibilities in jobs related to IT. Due to an over representation of men within jobs related to IT and a lack of female role models, some women might feel lonely in the field. That’s why WiTech was created. WiTech is not bound to any companies which makes this network open for everyone. We want the network to be a place where we can exchange knowledge, inspire others and show the variety of roles within the field.

We also have a strong commitment to inspire the next generation of Girls to work with IT or choose to study IT. WiTech also aims to create more female role models. The IT-industry is evolving rapidly, and we need as many qualified people as possible, but the number of females in the IT-industry and the number of females who study IT is still low.
