If she can see it, she can be it!

Our mission is to help end inequality and increase diversity in the technology and digital sector. Digital Her exists to address these issues, by inspiring and encouraging more women across Greater Manchester to consider careers in technology and digital.

By harnessing the power of industry mentors and real role models, Digital Her provides the support, opportunities and guidance needed to empower and inspire women into our industry and equip those key influencers around them, particularly for young women (teachers, careers advisors and parents) to help them make informed decisions about their digital futures.  

For women already working in tech, the Digital Her community is about supporting and elevating that voice and representation. Whether you’re a woman in tech, an advocate or an ally, join the mission. 

Join Us!

Tuesday 8th March is International Women’s Day. What better way to celebrate this, than  hosting our first Role Model Meet-up of 2022. One of the subjects we’ll be exploring will be how we #BreakTheBias around women in tech.
