Women in Tech Academy was founded on the lessons learned and experiences from over 25 years in the business world.
Naz, the Founder, is a crazy engineer and “wants to improve the world for women”.
As a side project to her corporate job, in 2012 she started to study issues for gender-equality in tech especially from her perspectives of a working mum with 2 school-aged kids.
During this time she networked with experts around the world, joined in conferences and participated in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Mentorship projects. She searched and reviewed the best practices not only from Europe but also from USA and from Australia.
As part of her corporate assignments and independent research she has developed valuable insights into the digital industrial revolution, new working culture of digital technology and as a result she decided to develop an online teaching organisation to enable women to build successful digital technical careers.

We grouped the skills that are needed to have a successful technical career and a harmonized personal life in 3 categories:
We provide an online based platform for mothers to take advantage fast-track programs, e-courses or mentoring. To support our community we also offer free webinars to build the core skills required by employers.
Our solution partners and best-practice owners are selected carefully and monitored continuously for the performance and quality.
As a side impact we want to facilitate real good-practice exchange between english and german speaking communities. Therefore we publish content in both languages and provide solutions in both languages.
