Join our 2020 team!

Learn new skills with like-minded friends

TechLadies is a community-led initiative for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance in the tech industry. We are a group of friends who love technology and believe that gender should not stop anyone from experiencing programming and succeeding in the tech industry.

Our mission is to increase women’s participation and create equal opportunities for women in the tech industry. We want to provide women the community, education, and the opportunity to become better engineers, product managers, and designers.

Since our launch in 2016, we have built up an amazing international community in Asia and empowered women to switch careers into tech. To increase the impact of our work and help more women, we need your help!
