Carolina Women in Tech
Our members encompass any woman that embraces the role that technology plays in her career, business, and life.
What We Do
We are Women in Tech
Our mission is to empower, engage, and educate women in tech. We have a unique opportunity to unite and support each other. We encourage any woman that celebrates technology to join our effort.
We will be offering many opportunities to network with other women in tech. We encourage one on one connecting as well as at our meetup events.
Our goal as a non profit is to fundraise to provide opportunities for education. Continuing education, bootcamps, scholarships, and grants.
The ultimate goal of this group is to empower each and every women that values the role that technology plays in her life.
Why Should You Join Us?
We are better together. We need each other. Bottomline – statistics show that we need more women in tech. The roles are lopsided and our goal is to help provide a more even environment. We know that women led businesses perform better. We also know that we need more women in tech. Join us because we are better together.
Women account for only 20% of the bachelor’s degrees conferred in engineering, computer science, and physics.
Regardless of specific area of technology, only about 25% of these positions are held by women. (National Center for Educational Statistics)
And, while women represent almost half of the US workforce, just 5% are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and that number expands only slightly when looking at Fortune 1000 companies. (Pew Research)

“BUSINESS AGILITY – YES IT IS HAPPENING OUTSIDE OF IT AND THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP BRING ALONG YOUR BUSINESS PARTNERS”
Over the years, Agile has become viewed as a process that technology teams use to deliver value. Agile values and principles have been adopted by many technical teams to improve the flow and quality of their delivery. The widespread adoption of Agile in the Information Technology space may lead some to believe that it is an “IT thing”.
In recent years the conversation regarding Agile has been reshaped to focus on how Agile is in fact, not just an “IT thing”, but a way to achieve organizational goals in an accelerated way and to do so with responsiveness and flexibility. Many organizations are expanding their thinking from Agile being about process to applying Agile principles and values to the way they run their business, not just within the technology space.
Engage. Educate. Empower.
Let’s celebrate, support, and build each other up.
