Today the International Women's Day - a good opportunity to share our thoughts and efforts on this and to raise awareness about women in tech. As Swarmit, our goal is to create a work environment that is as welcoming and supportive for women as it is for men. As of today, 40% of our team consists of women We believe that a good mix of genders and backgrounds is necessary to create a diverse and innovative work environment.
As part of our commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion, we've put together 5 tips and tricks that can help you get a successful foothold in the tech industry. Let's go!
Network with other women in the industryJoin communities and groups, attend events and conferences, and network with other women in tech. This can help you network, share experiences and get inspired.

Set goals and continuously work towards themThink about what you want to achieve in the tech industry and set clear goals. Also, regularly take the time to reflect on and celebrate your progress - we tend to be too critical in our own reflection and overlook the positive achievements.

We are convinced that the tech industry can become a place where women find equal success and recognition as men - especially if we all work together to achieve this.
