We are here to...
Put an end to gender inequality in high-tech industries and start-ups
By supporting growth and education for girls and women in technology
Why are we here?
Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders despite making up 45% of the Singapore workforce and half of the University students. Even in this day and age, women in Singapore only occupy about 25% of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) jobs and account for only 30% of all entrepreneurs, both tech and non-tech. This leaves a huge opportunity for Girls in Tech to support the growth and education of women in tech, for both engineering and non-engineering roles to get those statistics more balanced. We support the growth and education of women in tech to put an end to gender inequality in high-tech industries and startups globally and in Singapore specifically.

It is Girls in Tech’s mission to support women with the access and community they need to succeed in tech.
