Focus of Work

The proportion of female IT specialists is just 17% (BITKOM). This underrepresentation means that women's needs are little or not considered. The IT & me project therefore gives women more presence in IT. We develop - in partnership with the target group - an e-learning and networking platform on which female IT specialists can individually develop themselves in order to prepare for the next career stage. We encourage exchanges and networking so that women in IT can mutually support each other and become more present in the industry.
