Support Women in Tech Revolution
We have a dream, to inspire every tech-curious woman to join the technology revolution by providing them with a diverse array of female role models, access to the resources that they need and a mentor for life. Our 2030 vision is that 50% of the tech space is occupied by women.

To keep our events running and to help us to develop the #SponsorHER programme we have added an option to allow you to donate as little or as much as you like.
