For women to be equal members in creating and developing the new technology businesses, products, and services that shape our world, ensuring technology works for all.
What we do
Tech She Can is a charity, working together with industry, government, and schools to improve the ratio of women in technology roles by:
We’re educating, equipping and inspiring young people, especially girls, to study technology subjects and choose a career in technology
We’re influencing change in the workplace, in schools and colleges, and with government.
We’re influencing change at the individual level, whether in the classroom or in the workplace, inspiring each girl or woman about the possibilities a career in technology could offer
We’re partnering with organisations such as STEM Ambassadors and Tech Talent Charter to shine a spotlight on the issues and barriers surrounding progress - publishing insights and research, and advocating for change.
We’re profiling and celebrating success stories, highlighting inspirational women and organisations that ‘get it’.
We’re leading change at the top, working with industry leaders and government to shape new, inclusive education, skills, family, and workplace policies.
We are on a mission for an equal future
We don’t know what the jobs of the future will be, what the workplace will look like, or how major challenges such as climate change and personalised medicine will be tackled by the next generation. But we do know that technological innovations will shape the businesses, products, solutions, infrastructure and services that underpin our world.
We also know that women’s creativity and innovations are critical in developing technology that works for all. Tech She Can’s mission is to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in developing technology, and for women to play an equal role in how our world works, looks, thinks and feels.
Collaboration is our ‘superpower’. We’re designing our future together.
9-14 years: Tech We Can
We create free school resources and lessons, for use by teachers or parents, to improve technology literacy and inspire young minds about what a career in technology could look like. Called 'Tech We Can', the programme is hosted online by our strategic partner, UST.
We also train and provide resources for our members, enabling them to host lessons and role model sessions as a community of Tech We Can Champions, delivering change at scale.
Coming soon - new learning materials to inspire 5-8 year olds.
11-18 years: Career pathways
We bring together industry and schools, to deliver Careers Insights programmes which give pupils and teachers a taste of prospective roles in technology.
18+: Pathways into work
We design female-friendly apprenticeship opportunities for school leavers, returners and beyond in partnership with our member organisations in order to increase the number of women in technology roles.
