Happy International Women’s Day to all Girls in Tech Paris members!
As a female-led non-profit organisation geared towards creating more equality in the tech industry, International Women’s Day is one of Girls in Tech’s favourite days to celebrate female achievement and empowerment.
Not only does today serve as a reminder of how far we’ve come as women, but an indicator of how far we still have to go. That is why we strive to come together today – and every day – to #BalanceForBetter and break down society’s gendered walls.
Thank you to all of you for motivating the Girls In Tech Paris team and community. We have over the past year achieved many new milestones for Girls in Tech Paris, among them:
First French AMPLIFY event where three female founded start-ups won the first prize of going to Singapore for one week to meet and connect with the start-up scene in Singapore. We were also the first french non-profit who was awarded the France-Singapore Year of Innovation label, and was acknowledged in the official address of the Prime Minister’s Office of Singapore.
Collaboration with VivaTech where Girls In Tech members got access passes to the Empowerment Talk and to the exhibition area of VivaTech.
Conference with La Maison du Bitcoin where Girls In Tech Paris members learned about blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
In 2019, we’ll be working even harder to bridge this inequality gap by providing more education, netwroking and valorisation opportunities for our members, from our partnership with Big Data Paris conference, to Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards, and as seen in the press release yesterday, Vivatechnology.
This year, we’ll be working hand-in-hand with Vivatechnology to provide high-power seminars and mentoring sessions for our community. We will also be bring back Amplify with more exciting partners due to the big success from last year.
