Women getting into technology has been the purpose for Women in Tech Global since its foundation in 2018 and the Organization has not disappointed.
Ayumi Moore Aoki started Women in Tech Global in 2018 in a bid to foster inclusivity, Diversity and Equity in the world of technology. Her aim was to empower young girls and women through four main pillars: Education, Business, Digital Inclusion and Advocacy.
“I created Women in Tech not only as an organization but as a Call to Action,” Ayumi Moore says, as per the Women-in-Tech Global website. “We promote girl’s and women’s empowerment around the world, with a focus on Sustainable Development Goal 5b: harnessing technologies. This bold vision is what has united our movement across the boundaries of geography, status and culture.”
The organization has so far, impacted over a quarter a billion women around the world, with over 2000 Mentors and Mentees having been paired in the four years of its existence. As an incubation for women getting into technology, Women in Tech Global has also donated over 260 computers. The Organization has a presence in almost all continents, from North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
