Women in Tech Ruhr

Our purpose is to enable women and other underrepresented groups to live their interest in technology and have a network for knowledge exchange.

Unser Ziel ist es Frauen und andere unterrepräsentierte Gruppen für technische Berufe zu begeistern und gleichzeitig einen Raum für den gemeinsamen Wissensaustausch zu gestalten.
