Who We Are

Learn about our mission and meet our team

Fearless into Tech is a non-profit initiative from women for women.

What brings us together is our strong will to hack into the digital sector, regardless of lacking a technical career background or related education.

Our community offers women a safe space to acquire new digital skills at their own pace, while at the same time building own networks, supporting each other and keeping track of individual and common goals.

Our mission

Our mission is to make the Tech Sector more accessible for women and minorities from outside the sector, seeking for a career change from non-tech to tech.

Due to the latent gender gap in the sector, we mainly focus on offering women a safe and solidarious space to acquire new digital skills at their own pace, while having access to free learning resources, peer-support and guidance by professional mentors.

While we believe in skill transferability and human potential, we also believe that closing the gender gap in the Tech Sector requires a common effort. Acknowledging our stereotypes and biases towards the sector can help shifting our perception of tech related professions.

At Fearless into Tech we want to inspire our community members by showcasing stories of diverse role models and their very diverse career paths into Tech, and tech companies by showcasing that talent and skill development is neither static nor dependent on certificates / titles, but rather driven by the unlimited human drive to learn, explore and create.
