TechLadies believe that technology is a superpower to do good. This is why we create apps for non-profit organizations through our TechLadies Bootcamp. Since the start of TechLadies Bootcamp in 2016, we've worked with these beneficiaries.
"It was early 2016 that my organization decided we needed to revamp our database to document the types of problems that distressed migrant workers were facing when they approach us for help. Just as I was looking around for a suitable volunteer or company, I received an email for TechLadies! It could not have been more timely. Even though the volunteers were new or inexperienced in programming, they did a good job in meeting my organization's needs. Thank you TechLadies!" - Jolovan Wham, Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics
TechLadies is run by volunteers in the tech industry who are passionate about bringing more women into tech.

Event coordinators create amazing TechLadies events! TechLadies events are attended by 60 - 200 folks (mainly women) who are interested or are already learning how to code. For many of these women, our events are the only place where they interact with other women in tech. As such, we take pride in putting up a good event! We need volunteers to secure venue sponsorship, book catering services, and coordinate event manpower.
Behind every successful event is a bunch of awesome event helpers! Event helpers are people who make things happen - from welcoming attendees, coordinating venue logistics, documenting the event with photos and social media updates, and generally making sure the event happen.
People look to the TechLadies blog for information on programming, our activities and discover stories of women who picked up programming after college. We need writers to create these amazing content to help more women pick up programming!
Depending on the content, we may need writers to have basic programming knowledge.
Editors own the different content categories on the TechLadies blog. You will be researching what content we should publish on the blog, guide writers on how the articles should be written in, and decide on the publishing schedule. There’s a lot to learn and practice in this role!
Depending on the category, we may need editors to have basic programming knowledge.
A lot of people have come together to TechLadies happen; it would be a pity if nobody know about it! We want more women to know about TechLadies, that they have a community that they can go to learn programming, to discuss challenges they have and to celebrate their wins with!
You would help us plan and execute media campaigns to increase awareness of TechLadies.
TechLadies is a community-run initiative and we want to reach more women. To do that, we need to tap onto the various schemes (Skillsfuture etc) and grants provided by the Singapore government! Help sustain and grow TechLadies by volunteering to research, create the necessary documents, and apply for grants.
