Our Vision and Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to guide as many people who identify as women or nonbinary in technology as possible to the top of their career mountains.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world with equal gender representation in the Director and Executive ranks of tech companies and equal pay for men and women.

We believe that the world will be a vastly better place if more tech products are made by women and people with different backgrounds and perspectives.


And while we recognize that the playing field is not yet even for women, nonbinary and minorities in tech, we believe that the more of them climb to the top, the easier it will be for those who follow in their steps.


That's the way to equity.

Not a glass ceilling but a bottleneck mid-way up the career mountain

A gender pay gap that compounds to meaningful comp difference

According to GlassDoor Pay Gap study, the gender pay gap in the  the IT Sector in the United States is 5.9% of which 1/3 is "unexplained" and likely attributed to conscious and unconscious bias.

 For a $200,000 base salary, that's an annual difference of $12K, which compounds to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars of missed economic wealth for women over the course of their careers. :(
