Perspektywy Women in Tech


Wiser by 2021, we go our own way. Surely and decidedly. We see an entire new generation of young women in tech. They started their journey with us, they participated in the programs, they grew and spread their wings. Now they themselves are gaining more and more influence and co-creating the tech industry. They engage. Either in more and more prominent positions in global corporations, in small, but creative game-houses, heading their own startups, making waves in sciences, or somewhere in between – at the edges they created for themselves. And THEY NEVER WALK ALONE –– because they know ALL the women in technologies and that group, that network, keeps growing. Nothing can stop this force now.

In the new year the Perspektywy Women in Tech will focus on building the strong presence of women in technology with a series of complex activities. The main topics will be: Tech for climate, women's leadership and vision of the future presented by young people.

Wise Hope is our motto for 2022

Gender Equality Plans – revolution at universities

A great change is coming. The European Union set firm rules for all the public institutions – including universities – who want to apply for the Horizon Europe funds. And this the largest instrument for financing scientific research in this continent. From 2022 they all need to implement Gender Equality Plansstrategies for combating inequality in careers, governing bodies, and salaries, as well as discrimination and sexism. The Perspektywy Foundation engages in supporting universities and research institutes in the efforts of designing such organisational changes. It held two webinars on the subject – 500 persons participated in total! They also provide individual consultations on this issue. WEBINAR
