Women in Tech Cluj
Learn. Share. Support. Empower. Create awareness
Mission & History
LEARN. SHARE. SUPPORT. EMPOWER.
Women in Tech Cluj has started in April 2018 after lots of months tinkering on how cool it would be to have recurrent meetups where women take the spotlight. The tipping point was a dinner with several tech enthusiasts gathered around (and thanks to) Sarah Drasner, an award-winning speaker with a stellar technical career. It was then when our founders, Oana, Mela and Gina understood the need and interest for such a community.
Our mission is to share, support and grow together. We want to make the work of technical women visible and support them to stand up and have a voice. To do so we meet at least once a month and experiment with formats and topics, both technical and non-technical ones.
We stay true to our values and remain neutral to company publicity or recruitment attempts, as we believe creating a safe space is essential to building a healthy community. We will nevertheless hold meetups in companies' offices and coworking spaces to be connected to the local business environment.
Despite the (apparently) exclusive name, we are welcoming men and women alike, to be part of Women in Tech Cluj. We have made a choice over and over again regarding the name as we believe that in today's world, women are wearing different hats and sometimes lack the confidence to promote their results, go for that promotion, apply for that job. Please join us to make this happen!

OUR NEXT MEETUP
Ever wondered about the relationship between gender diversity and the financial performance of organisations?🤔 Ever considered instruments that can help organisations measure and monitor gender equity, gender-equity-based results, and have a frank and constructive conversation on gender? Business models rarely incorporate considerations towards gender equity or fairness. 👩👨
Join us as we dive into the topic, and have a look at some relevant concepts, facts, and figures, while also hearing valuable opinions from business owners, industry executives, researchers, and civic actors focusing on the issue. 💡
🏢 This meetup is organised together with Transilvania IT Cluster.
