Female Tech Heroes

Read now

Female Tech Heroes is a new initiative in the Brainport region dedicated to women working in technology. High Tech Campus Eindhoven: 'We want to inspire women in tech, but also women who are curious about tech'.

Why Female Tech Heroes?
Organisers Ingelou Stol & Hilde de Vocht: 'At present, the percentage of women working in tech worldwide is still relatively low. 'We work in an environment heavily dominated by men, and we need more women. Diversity is the key to success.'


Ingelou Stol, Neelie Kroes, Hilde de Vocht

'Research shows that diverse teams perform better. Individuals from different genders, races, backgrounds and experiences bring different perspectives that can lead to innovative solutions. Having key women in senior leadership roles will positively encourage other females to join an organisation that is supportive of advancing women’s careers, thus increasing overall company growth and productivity.'

Almost 1500 women have already registered for the Female Tech Heroes Network, so that's great. We need more women in tech, so register, invite your colleagues and friends and let's make this happen! 

In the Female Tech Heroes Network we will make sure to bring our members together for at least twice a year. And we will keep you updated about news regarding women in technology. You can also send us your news, so we can share it with the community.
