CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE GLOBAL TECH

Global Tech was established in partnership with accelerateHER in 2018 and today includes 14 Members who lead some 300,000 employees, in 104 jurisdictions. The Group includes representatives from BBC, Condé Nast, Microsoft (M12), Vice Media Group, and WPP.

accelerateHER was born out of Founders Forum in June 2016 when we decided to stop talking about the under-representation of women in tech and do something about it. Their mission is to champion and support women working in technology and to identify tangible options of what we can do to remove the barriers to encourage more women to enter the sector.

The Global Tech Group is supported by the EQUALS Global Partnership. EQUALS began in 2014 as a collaboration between the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations (UN) Women. EQUALS seeks to advance women’s meaningful engagement with the tech industry and their role as decision-makers and producers within sector.
