About Girls in Tech Switzerland

The Swiss chapter of Girls in Tech was founded in 2016. In 2018, women accounted for only 14.6% of the Swiss tech workforce. We believe that attracting and retaining more women in tech is an important key to solving some of the greatest challenges that we face as humanity.

We started Girls in Tech Switzerland with the mission to build an inclusive and diverse tech community.

And we do so by empowering women and inspiring them through learning & networking opportunities.

More concretely, we aim to achieve our mission by:

  • providing our members with free access to career & tech events
  • highlighting diverse role models & giving women in tech visibility
  • raising awareness about the lack of diversity through various channels
  • partnering and joining forces with organizations, companies, and communities in tech

Girls in Tech Switzerland is run by a team of enthusiastic volunteers located in Zurich and Geneva/Lausanne.
