We’re proud to announce that we’ve joined forces with career marketplace Hired to get one step closer to a world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VCs, board members, and software engineers.
A commitment to inclusion in tech is at the core of Hired’s philosophy. The company regularly taps into its proprietary data to provide insight into the gender wage gap to arm women with data about their market worth and empower them throughout their career searches. They’ve also encouraged companies to investigate their own compensation policies to ensure they don’t perpetuate patterns of inequality. Together we’ll help career-aged women engineers excel in their careers and rise up to leadership positions in the industry.
Three out of five executives at Hired are women, including the Senior Vice President of Technology, Nidhi Gupta. “Engineering is still an old boys’ club in many ways.” says Nidhi. “Women in power need to ensure that there are lasting support systems in place to enable women in the field to flourish. If the next generation of women engineers can stand on our shoulders, I believe we can finally break through the industry’s glass ceiling.”
Hired will use Women Who Code’s database to fuel their talent pipeline and ensure that top women tech talent are connected with companies they’ll love. Together we’ll ensure that women engineers receive the mentorship, sponsorship, and guidance required to advance their careers. The work of Women Who Code is vital and catalytic, but it wouldn’t be possible without our partners. Thanks to organizations like Hired, we will continue to work towards a tech industry that accepts and values the incredible contributions of everyone.
We are an international community that consists of 100,000 members in 60 cities and 20 countries. We produce 1,700 free tech events and give away over $1M in scholarships and industry conference tickets each year. This partnership will fuel those efforts so that they can continue to expand their offerings and reach more women engineers around the world.
