WHO WE ARE

Global Women in Tech (GWiT) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2017 under OUG Nr. 26/2000, that promotes diversity and facilitates sustainable economic growth through international partnerships with organizations, companies and universities meant to bring in innovative programs aimed at enhancing the educational and professional development of women in STEM in Romania.
We are ‘global’ as we facilitate the international business exchange between Romania and other countries through the programs, networking and business opportunities we bring in.

Our Mission is to connect women with the STEM industry. We inspire and support the educational and professional development of women in Romania from classroom to boardroom, by facilitating their access to international knowledge, programs, mentoring, networking and career opportunities.

PROGRAMS


Code Diversity

Code Diversity aims at drawing together the companies in STEM with students from the technical universities under a joint summer school program so as to help the latter develop a career in tech. The best students will be selected and exposed to cutting edge workshops delivered by the companies, as well as to diverse business environments. The training is followed by a long term career orientation mentoring.

Startupedia

The scope of the program is to provide women in Romania with the inspiration, resources and support network necessary to start and successfully consolidate companies in tech. We aim at bringing in international know-how specific to the startup development, in close collaboration with companies and organizations abroad and contribute, thus, to the growth of sustainable and innovative startups.

Digital Leadership

The Digital Leadership suite encompasses a series of technical programs meant to generate awareness on digital trends and soft skills programs. Through this array of programs we will bring together exceptional young women with experts from global leading companies in technology. The enriched knowledge and skills will play a major role in women's professional development.

International Research

The international research program is meant to facilitate networking and collaboration between graduate and undergraduate female university students with scientists in STEM at global level, through projects, webinars and mentoring. Through this program women will hone research skills and drive innovation through research development in STEM.

Mentoring

The international program brings together highly experienced and skilled mentors activating within STEM with mentees, based on major interests, goals and industry. Every mentee is provided with a pathway that will help her pursue a career in STEM, grow and excel within that direction. The programs are tailored to every person's needs and requests, progress monitored and results measured.
