Networkers is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the Dallas chapter of Girls in Tech, (GIT) a global non-profit organisation focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of girls and women who are passionate about technology.

Founded in 2007, Girls in Tech was born out of the need to provide a platform for women to cultivate ideas, learn new skills, and advance their careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines. Girls in Tech now has 50,000 members located around the globe and 60 local chapters, or branches, which rely on volunteer efforts.

Richard Carter, Regional Director - Dallas, Networkers said:

“I’m excited to be announcing our partnership with Girls in Tech in Dallas today. It’s well documented that women are sorely underrepresented in almost every technology field and our decision to partner with Girls in Tech is a sign of our commitment to addressing the issue and continuing to raise the profile of gender diversity within technology.”    

Our recently launched Technology: Voice of the Workforce research is based on the views of more than 1,600 technology professionals from around the world, of which only 11% were female. On the subject of gender diversity, the research found that the majority (54%) believe that gender diversity is improving. When asked whose responsibility it is to address the issue, a third of respondents said they believe it is down to everyone within the industry to enhance diversity, rather than solely down to HR, management and leadership teams or government. 

Rachel Tang, Managing Director, Girls in Tech -Dallas Chapter added:

“Girls in Tech exists to support and raise the visibility of women in STEM, entrepreneurship and innovation, and we are pleased to welcome Networkers to the Dallas family.”

“In the coming months we look forward to working with Networkers and local partners on events and initiatives within our growing Girls in Tech community in Dallas.”

We look forward to sharing with you more information about our partnership over the coming weeks and months.
