Our Story
Why we do what we do
A Meeting Of Minds
We have seen alot of diversity problems in the Tech Industry. From male dominated classrooms to industries and we have asked alot of questions about it because it is such a beautiful uprising, interesting and well paid field but still the statistics show that more and more women run away from these field.
As students, we have asked a lot about what it’s like to be a woman in tech. Are there any horror stories? Do they experience sexism in school or at work? Would they rather be asked about their technical accomplishments and the technology we’ve built. We decided to take control and do something about it. And Ladies in Tech was born was born. We believe in the power of stories, and understand stories are the ways to the heart. We interview fellow women engineers and showcase the cutting-edge technology they’ve built and tell their stories. From the high school student teaching herself to code, to the CEO running her business

A Singular Focus
Ladies in Tech is on a mission to increase the faces of women in STEM. To break stereotypes and inspire women and girls to pursue careers in STEM.To see diversity back in CS classrooms again. Our Events and stories profile diverse women, offering an authentic perspective while celebrating and acknowledging their accomplishments. Furthermore, we desire to highlight the myriad applications of computer science--from art to biology to finance--and stress the fact that an interest in computer science does not commit one to any particular industry.
