Looking forward to International Women’s Day 2022
Equality takes persistence. This International Women's Day, the Samsung Developers team will be marking the moment and celebrating the achievements of women in tech.
Since this day in 2020, we’ve been keeping an eye on organizations moving the needle and granting females of all skill levels the opportunities they need to succeed in tech, development, engineering, design and more.
Here’s another round up of incredible initiatives supporting women today:
Online tech communities
- Girl Develop It: Girl Develop It is a non-profit organization providing welcoming, supportive opportunities for women and non-binary adults to learn software development skills through virtual classes, projects, and events. Here, you can join the over 100,000 past GDI students who have developed code, confidence, and community.
- Elpha: Elpha is a group of experienced women who already work in the technology business.
- PyLadies: This international mentorship group helps women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Its mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach and education.
Meetups and workshops
- Geek Girls Carrots: With more than a thousand meetups and workshops taking place in 17 different countries, Geek Girls Carrots connects many likeminded women and girls around the world. These events provide the opportunity for women to find their place in the tech ecosystem.
- Ladies that UX: Ladies that UX is a global community of women in UX who support each other while promoting skill and talent. With chapters across the country and annual conferences, there is likely a community near you.
The next generation of women in tech
- Women in Tech: With a mission to empower 5 million women and girls by 2030, Women in Tech is an international non-profit organization on a mission to close the gender gap and to help women embrace technology through empowerment.
- Girls Who code: The biggest drop off of girls in computer science occurs between the ages of 13 and 17. Girls who Code strives to reach young women before that happens. Its goal is to close the gender gap in new entry-level tech jobs.
We commend these organizations for doing their part to #BreakTheBias.
