Women and Tech

Women and Tech aims to make women more active members in the civic technology ecosystem. Our focus is on enabling women to utilize and benefit from technology and to participate fully in civic life.

Through regular meetups, workshops, talks, and hackathons we aim to create a community of technologists and women with a focus on highlighting civic issues impacting lives of women in Pakistan (e.g security, health, education). Through trainings and skill building, Women and Tech aims to create solutions and tools that help Pakistani women, encourage civic participation, and empower them.
