Women Love Tech Launches Digital Community Hub With A Mentoring Platform And Video Courses

Women Love Tech (WLT) is proud to announce the launch of its new digital Community Hub. This platform is a place where members can live, learn, grow, and connect with each other, including the WLT sisterhood, mentors, coaches, brands, courses, content, and more.

The new WLT Community Hub will enable members to join for a fee of $10 per month and will specifically target growth both across Australia and globally in areas such as the USA, UK, and India.

Priced at $10 per month, the digital platform will accelerate the goal of supporting more women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

“Women Love Tech launched over ten years ago and has a rich community of women, who are all poised and ready to start or accelerate their careers in technology and I am proud that we are going to be supporting these women,” says Robyn Foyster, Editor and Owner of Women Love Tech

“We have always supported women in tech by profiling female leaders in business and sharing stories that matter to women from diversity and inclusion to the prevalence of unconscious bias in AI. Now, through our flagship initiative this year we will launch our first Community Hub including Women Learn Tech, which has been designed to enable our community to connect and learn from leaders and experts in the tech industry. Everyone will be able to take part in both paid and free bite-sized tutorials at any time so that they can upskill, and improve their confidence.

“Along with our course programmes, our mentorship platform will enable our community to tap into the collective wisdom of our mentors and provide the opportunity for men or women to be a mentor. We need more women taking up roles in the tech industry and this is a gateway for women to get more involved.”

Women Love Tech is looking for key partnerships with companies and universities alike to come on this journey with us. We are also inviting future mentors to contact us on editor@womenlovetech.

Here in Australia, we have a serious tech skills shortage and yet we have a gender imbalance of women working in the STEM fields. In spite of this, the opportunities here for women are endless, not to mention well paid often with flexible hours.

 

Here are some not-so-fun facts:

 

Only 28% of people working in tech identify as women

Only 5% of CEOs of ASX 200 companies are women

Women founders got only 0.7% of start-up funding in 2022

And, just to ram home a painful reality, did you know it will take 136 years to close the gender pay gap?

 

“At Women Love Tech, we are trying to do something about those stats – and it motivates our every decision, because THIS story needs telling – and transforming! And we plan to do that through our new mentoring and video course platform,” adds Robyn.

“This initiative is coming late April – and already we are being inundated by those who are interested in in getting started and being part of our new Community Hub.”

Best&Less does U-turn on deal to sign garment worker accord

Best&Less has done a U-turn on its commitment to sign an international Accord on worker safety on the anniversary of a factory collapse that crushed 1,138 garment workers. Today is the 11th anniversary of the disaster. In May 2023, following the 10th anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse, Best&Less told ActionAid Australia of its intention to join other Aussie brands like Big W, Kmart, and Cotton On in signing the Accord. But late last year it became apparent Best&Less had lost motivation to sign the Accord. As of February 2024 Best&Less was still sourcing from two factories in Bangladesh, Sayam…
