The organization focuses on 4 primary areas that are a call for action: Education, Entrepreneurialism, Social Inclusion, Science & Innovation. The aim is to educate, equip and empower women and girls with the necessary skills and confidence to succeed in STEM career fields.

More than an organization, we are a global movement made up of members, partners and an ecosystem of networks that share our values and that have the same mission of striving for an Inclusive Tech industry. The issue of women empowerment in Tech is of major importance. We have to tackle it as a global community so as to drive sustainable change and create the necessary impact.
