The Female Tech Heroes Network – a new initiative to make more women enthusiastic about tech – looks back to a successful launch. To celebrate this, initiators Hilde de Vocht and Ingelou Stol will open the trading day at Euronext in Amsterdam, together with their ambassadors.
Female Tech Heroes is a new initiative of High Tech Campus Eindhoven dedicated to women working in technology.
Hilde de Vocht & Ingelou Stol: ‘At present, the percentage of women working in tech worldwide is still relatively low. We work in an environment heavily dominated by men, and we need more women. Diversity is the key to success. Female Tech Heroes is going to create role models, among other things, to inspire women how amazing it is to work in tech.’
High Tech Campus Eindhoven is the square kilometer in Europe with 200 high tech companies. The Female Tech Heroes Network has been created with the support of ambassadors like Philips, TomTom, ASML, NXP, Thermo Fisher Scientific, TNO and Adyen.
