Diversity in tech is something we take very seriously. That’s why we constantly support networks that are focusing on helping women get in to the tech industry. A great initiative we support is Women in Tech. Every year they’re boosting a selected group of talented women with education, fact finding trips and mentorship from some of the greatest tech profiles in Sweden. In the region of Jönköping, we’re constantly trying to find new and exciting collaborations to strengthen our network.
I-Tech Brains is a neutral network where the region’s leading creators and digital talents can discuss and create solutions to existing problems and challenges. Recurring networking meetings where specific techniques, code languages, industries with their problems and challenges are discussed, hacked and tested.
The members of the network collaborate digitally between the meetings. The purpose of the network is to get the region’s smartest digital talents to work together to solve the problems and challenges they face in their daily lives. The members also have access to the creative lab environment and the latest knowledge and research through the competence center.
Today, these people encounter problems, as they all often work at different companies and are seen as competitors. This can hamper development, and by creating the network, bridges can be built between companies, thus finding forms for new meetings and collaborations. Today, it is known that niche networks are created across borders, but members often find it difficult to find neutral places to hold their meetings, and they often have no financial support for development. Here, we think that Transform to AAA, Digital Dreams and I-tech Brains can make a difference by enabling both the economy and a neutral host space in the form of Science Park and Jönköping University.
Even though women are higher educated, they are not seen in leading positions in society. The composition of the boardroom – and senior positions in general – consists mainly of men. Few women run growth companies/ startups/tech & technology companies in the region of Jönköping. Of applicants for technical courses at Jönköping University, the proportion of women is low. Fewer women than men have technical professions. All of this affects business creativity, innovation power and ability to transform. Promoting increased diversity in business is a survival issue for businesses. Therefore, the efforts undertaken in the Transform to AAA project will be put in a perspective of gender mainstreaming.
Therefore, WI-Tech Brains is needed.
To show how digital equality can make a difference for creativity and innovation, Transform to AAA through Digital Dreams has created the WI-tech Brains network. The neutral network is created for facilitating the exchange of experience, ideas, mentorship, inspiration, and cooperation. In particular, the network is created for the region’s leading female creators and digital technicians to discuss and solve solutions to existing problems and challenges.
As a first step to get more women to engage in IT the WI-Tech Brains network, several local businesses, organizations, and schools have created the course Hello, Girl! with the purpose to make more women discover coding.
