EdTechWomen is a networked community of women and their supporters working to develop the leadership capacity of women in education technology through the values of inclusivity, visibility, and impact.
We are a networked community for women's leadership in education technology. We are business experts, technologists, designers, and educators working to support the development of women's leadership capacity and opportunity in education technology.
We build connections and skills that lead to stronger businesses, better products, and different schools. We create a community, united on the local, national, international, and digital levels, committed to support and innovation, driven to make change.
Our mission is to increase the leadership capacity of women in education technology through inclusivity, visibility, and impact.
We are a community of women and supporters linked through authentic connections, working to build relationships, develop careers, and change standards, in ways that increase and improve leadership opportunities for women in education technology. We do this 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, all identities, all genders, and all backgrounds.
Visibility: EdTechWomen wants the world to see the impact women have as leaders, decision-makers, and experts, and the power they have as a network. By providing opportunities and events where the accomplishments of women can be seen and shared, EdTechWomen accelerates 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.
EdTechWomen exists as three elements - local chapters, national conference events, and online social connections. Through local chapters organized by individuals from all aspects of edtech, we are able to offer community building events and professional development opportunities. On the national level, conference networking socials and development events showcase members of our community, while building new connections that grow our network. Through our online social connections we create opportunities for continuous discussion and relationship building across the edtech industry.
