The Paris chapter was founded in November 2017 by passionate designers and techies: Alexandra, Emily and Aurora. Each of us had our own journey to Paris (Alexandra and Emily came from San Francisco, and Aurora from Madrid), but when we got here we all noticed a real need for a community of women in design and tech.
The Paris tech scene has exploded in the past few years with new start-ups popping up everywhere. After seeing very few women at typical tech events, we decided to create a space where women have more representation and a stronger voice. We also wanted to give local companies a chance to show their support for women in tech and what makes each company unique.
We host a variety of events focused on learning, making things, and most of all, building relationships. Our events are hosted in English and with mandatory Parisian flare. Our goal is to start a mentorship program in the second half of 2018.
