Our mission is to create an inclusive community of women and their supporters from all aspects of the education technology industry in order to build and enhance the leadership capacity of women.

 

 

Our Values

 

EdTechWomen is community of women and their supporters linked through authentic connections, events, and opportunities for mentorship and collaboration through the values of inclusivity, visibility, and impact. 

Inclusivity: EdTechWomen is an open platform where members from across the edtech ecosystem, including educators, business leaders, technologists, students, consumers, and developers, can come together. It is an inclusive community, sharing experiences from all ages and all backgrounds. 

Visibility: EdTechWomen wants the world to be see the impact women have as leaders, decision-makers, and experts, and as a community. By providing opportunities and events where the accomplishments of women can be seen and shared, EdTechWomen can enhance the development of individuals, companies, and the community as a whole.

Impact: EdTechWomen exists because a group of women came together with a shared vision for creating a more connected, more collaborative, and more welcoming community within education technology. EdTechWomen offers a network and platform to provide members with skill development, mentorship, and other opportunities to accelerate their careers and positive impact.

 

 

Get Involved

 

EdTechWomen exists as three elements - local chapters, national conference events, and our community blog. Through local chapters organized by women from all aspects of edtech we are able to offer community building events and professional development opportunities. On the national level our co-founders organize conference networking socials and development events that showcase the members of our community on the national stage. Through our blog we publish content relevant to all aspects of the edtech industry, written by everyone from educators in the classroom to women operating their own businesses and software companies.
