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?
A career development platform focussed on equipping Black and Minority Ethnic(BME) women with the skills they need 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?
To drive diversity and innovation in the Technology industry. We want to equip women with all the skills they need to secure Technology internships and entry level roles that will eventually 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 rolemodels sharing career advice and routes into Tech
Recruitment channels and career opportunities at our partner companies.

What do we do?

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:
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
Through our events, we connect Black and Minority Ethnic women to women in the first 5-10 years of their career in Technology
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:
Our goal is to transform the Technology industry by driving diversity. The more diverse an industry is, the more innovative it becomes.
