As a man in tech, I know firsthand the challenges and biases that women in the industry can face. That’s why I was personally motivated to create this event and provide a platform for women to come together, learn from each other, and gain the skills and confidence they need to succeed. I believe that empowering and supporting women in tech can create a more diverse and innovative industry that benefits everyone.
