Another Community? @pionerasdev

Yes, we’re aware of the vast amount of Tech Communities in Colombia. But we believe that in the actual state of #WomenInTech in Colombia, confidence (struggle with imposter syndrome) and meaningful connections are the keys.

Our goals: Being and becoming leaders and role models in the tech industry.

Our mantras:

  • Influence the change we wish to see in the world
  • Trust your own path and choices
  • Sharpen your skills
  • Valuable connections
  • Human discussions
  • Inspire the next generation

Unique barriers to enter tech fields like work and family responsibilities can be a hurdle that keeps many women from continuing professional development. If you’re not a woman in tech, it may be unclear why…it’s simple: We just had a sense that women needed to stick together.

Pioneras (Corporación Pioneras) is a registered non-profit. Donations will help with funding free events for women in Medellín, Colombia. But most important we need your support, whether it’s through mentoring, hiring, teaching or collaborating on a project. Help us making women more visible, and helping to achieve their goals.

Are you a truly Women Pioneer in tech?
