Women Go Tech
Women Go Tech is an initiative by Global Shapers Vilnius Hub with the goal to attract more women to the ICT (Information Technology Sector) through mentorship from top industry leaders. The mentorship programme has attracted highly influential tech companies to become official Women Go Tech partners: leading ICT association in Lithuania, INFOBALT, and partners known in Lithuania and across Europe including Barclays, TransferGo, WIX, and Telia.
The mentorship programme has a cycle of six months through which selected young women who successfully pass interviews and a background check are paired with successful C-level professionals who can guide them through the many possibilities and opportunities in the technology sector. Tête-à-tête meetings between the mentor and mentee are accompanied by monthly Women Go Tech community gatherings and events where women can network, learn new skills and share insights in the primarily man-dominated tech sector.
