Hi there! I’m Beata. After running a local group of women in tech in Poland, I relocated to Malta and was amazed by the number of female organizations.
I was thrilled to meet many women in technology. However, each and every time we met during tech events, we were a rather tiny minority of participants. I got invited to participate in the eSkills Malta Women in Tech focus group and we gathered every so often to discuss what could be done to change the ratio. Unfortunately, change was not happening fast enough so I decided to take matters into my hands.
I decided to take action, creating Women On I T, an initiative committed to bringing together women in technology and startups (as well as our allies) in a vibrant and inclusive community.
The main objective is to promote the visibility and inclusion of women and people from other backgrounds under-represented in technology and startups, businesses. Apart from meetups, we are planning workshops and different initiatives that will showcase the achievements of women in tech and throughout the business while identifying new role models.
This is a grassroots community that focuses on Women On I T: an inclusive forum of women in technology, startups, female leaders; who are supported by men as well!!
And I bring heart to that hustle because empathy is my m.o.
I have been a facilitator of Geek Girls Carrots since 2013, the change can happen if we take action
All I would ask now is to share it, like/follow the page and benefit from our vibrant community. Meetups, workshops, networking and more events coming soon, I will keep you posted!
I want you to succeed, #WomenOnIT hack the future! #PositivityHackDelivered
