Women in Tech Index by Honeypot - 2018
…and we are ready to change that!
Right now, women in technical roles are getting stuck in entry level positions or pivoting out of technical roles entirely. They are playing the wrong game…. The skills, capabilities, behaviors, and techniques that help women thrive in school do not translate well in the workforce. With so few women serving as leaders in STEM fields, the gender-specific issues that women face as they grow as professionals are often overlooked.
Transformation happens when we authentically address gaps that prohibit growth for emerging leaders.
Launched2Lead aims to move the needle on this statistic by focusing on the root issue: there are not enough women in leadership. We provide guidance, empowerment, and community for women as new hires, which will accelerate their growth and provide opportunities for their organization to organically create an inclusive culture.
