Women in Tech

Established in 2015, UCLA Women in Tech is a diverse community whose purpose is to develop and execute strategies that educate and promote success for women in technology fields and female students pursuing careers in technology. Our definition of a “woman in tech” is a female working in a technology role, such as an engineer, designer, or developer; one leading or supporting a technology division or organization;  one advocating for responsible design and use of technology; and one using technology to improve the lives of others.  Our community consists mainly campus technology staff, but can also include faculty, students, and the external technology community.

We focus on six pillars: 

  • Community engagement
  • Pipeline growth and Mentorship
  • Professional development
  • Recruitment and Hiring
  • Responsible Innovation
  • Workplace culture
