Empowering Women With Tech

Empowering Women with Tech is a Leeds based group that works to elevate, educate and empower women in digital, tech and science careers.

Only 17% of the Tech workforce are female, with less than 10% in leadership positions. With the significant role Digital/Technology plays in all of our lives, we need more of us to be active creators, not passive consumers and help shape what the tech products will look like in the future to ensure they meet all our needs.

We run a mentoring scheme and host events with inspirational role models working across all levels of science/digital/tech (from fashion bloggers to computer scientists/inventors to website entrepreneurs) to show just how varied and exciting the careers paths are, and to break the stigma that tech isn’t creative.
