Did you know that only 18% of people working in tech are women, with a widening gap and a missed opportunity for tech industry to grow further? Today, on International Women’s Day, we want to showcase the (already existing but yet not enough) strength and the diversity in the tech world. 62 women from 44 different companies joined us in our scope and have been featured on 55 billboards (known as ‘pepperbussen’) in and around the city of Amsterdam.

Let’s bring awareness to all these inspirational role models dismantling the status quo!

“The thing that is funny about tech is that it is very diverse. It is a diverse group that collaborates on new opportunities through technology.”
