What Inspired Women Who Tech:

Diversifying the tech sector is the main inspiration behind the Women Who Tech. If we are going to truly create technology and products for the masses, the tech world must be inclusive of all perspectives. Men are welcome to participate in Women Who Tech as we consider everyone an important part of these conversations.
