This site is the first for WPT, a rapidly growing international network for women in technology across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. Based on their mantra of supporting women in or entering tech careers – locally and globally – WPT’s website will serve as the gathering place for their worldwide audience.

WPT connects and benefits members worldwide

Angelique MohringSpearheaded by the newly-appointed Chief Marketing Officer Julia Rosien, WPT’s marketing team launched the website and social media channels to connect and empower members around the world. The site provides details about the benefits of getting involved in WPT, including mentorship, skill development and knowledge sharing. As the group expands its international footprint, the site will also showcase the work that WPT is doing to partner with technology hubs around the world.

“Women Powering Technology is about making real connections with our members, mentors and our local and global partners,” says Angelique Mohring, CEO of Women Powering Technology. “Technology, innovation, skill development, career advancement, business and economic growth are global challenges, not bound by geographical divides.  As we continue to build a robust ecosystem for Women Powering Technology, members can share both knowledge and experiences and find the connections and support they need to be successful.”


WPT’s vision and thought-leadership

In alignment with WPT’s vision, the blog will feature thought-leadership articles, information and insights that bring visibility to the powerful impact of women in the tech sector, as well as tackling current issues that prevent women from advancing in their careers. Initial blog posts will be written by WPT Board members and all members are encouraged to contribute to the conversation. [Waterloo] Inaugural Launch
