Closing the gender gap in technology

We’re building a gender diverse community

We’re on a mission to accelerate gender equality in tech. We want to see more representation, from classroom to boardroom. That’s why we’re building a community who are committed to the advancement of girls and women in technology. We offer a combination of physical and virtual spaces, where girls and women can find role models, mentors, share knowledge, and discuss opportunities.

We partner with organisations that address the root causes of the shortage of women in technology. Does this sound like you? Good, then we want to hear from you. Partner with Xena and let’s close the gender gap in tech together.

Teams with high diversity make better decisions.
