A GAME CHANGER FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY
Gateway is a non profit organization that provides a platform which seeks to inform, connect and inspire women in technology. The platform allows women to empower themselves and achieve career advancement.
GATEWAY FOUR PILLARS
We believe in four core principles that are game changers in the advancement of women in technology
Men Need to Be in The Room
We believe men need to be active members of forums that promote the advancement of women in technology. Many men are decision makers in their respective organizations and hence in a position to drive positive change. We want men to join us in the room, engage with us and become Gateway Allies that champion the advancement of women in technology in their respective organizations.
Technology Needs to be the Agenda
Technology is a dynamic and ever changing industry. Knowledge of industry trends, challenges and solutions will allow women to gain a competitive edge in the workplace. Gateway programming will help women to be more competitive in the workplace.
Each Woman Has Unique Challenges and Aspirations
Flexible working and maternity leave are not the primary issues faced by all women in technology. Each woman has her own respective challenges and career aspirations. Programs needs to address a broader range of issues faced by women. Gateway seeks to present career opportunities and options that address a diverse range of challenges and aspirations.
