WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

To drive diversity in the United Kingdom's Technology industry by equipping the under-represented with the skills they need to succeed.

Who are we?

An organisation focused on equipping Black and Minority Ethnic women with the skills needed to start a career in the Technology industry. Our team is made up of women who have been in the industry for 5-10 years and are passionate about paying it forward.

Why do we exist?

We want to equip women with all the skills they need to secure Technology internships and jobs that can lead to full time roles in the industry. The technology industry can sometimes look like a “black box” and we want to demystify and share how to start a career in Tech.

who have we collaborated with?

We host events at Technology driven companies and collaborate to deliver sessions covering:

  • Practical Tech skills workshops and collaboration opportunities for our Women In Tech community

  • BME Female role models sharing career advice and routes into Tech

  • Recruitment channels and career opportunities at our partner companies.

Our mission is to change these statistics by equipping women with the skills to join the Technology industry. We do this for free through the following initiatives:

  • Events

    • We host meet-ups, workshops and career fairs to engage with the women in Tech community and to connect women interested in starting Tech careers to women working in the Technology industry

  • Mentorship

    • Through our events, we connect Black and Minority Ethnic women to women in the first 5-10 years of their career in Technology

  • Resources

    • We provide CV, Cover letter and application templates online that have been created by women who have navigated the internship or graduate job hiring process.

Here is what the Witty Careers community have said about our events:

It blended various interests. There was something for everyone: Job hunting, Tech and business development and the entrepreneurial support.
— Bybreen S.
I was weary of attending, as with all tech events you wonder if the sessions will be too technical with lots of complicated coding and coding language, but you got the balance of the day completely right and everything was so accessible! The Witty Careers team were also so friendly and down to earth!
— Marsha C
 

OUR PROMISE
