  1. Hello! My name is Angie Chang Connecting, advocating, crusading, and

    elevating women in tech, entrepreneurship and business for decades
  2. Women 2.0 was started to connect women in the web

    2.0 space in 2006. [0] Started Women 2.0
  3. For six years, I moonlighted to share women's stories of

    entrepreneurship & ambitions on a blog regularly. Syndicated to Forbes & HuffPo. Recruited & managed team of writers & volunteers. Hosted myriad events, from Founder Fridays to Startup Weekends.
  4. By the end of my 7 years at Women 2.0,

    we scaled to host thousand-woman entrepreneurship all-day conferences! We encouraged women to PITCH big ideas, bringing onstage examples of diverse women speakers who made their big ideas happen.
  5. London Girl Geek Dinners started in August 2005 with Sarah

    Lamb, an engineer who wanted to meet other engineers. Angie Chang asked Google in Mountain View to host a Girl Geek Dinner, the first being in January 2008. [1] Started a local series of Girl Geek Dinners
  6. Launched in 2012 with the first coding bootcamps, Hackbright Academy

    sought to become the leading engineering school for women with a mission to increase female representation in tech through education. [2] Evolving Education
  7. Women are interested in tech - building and working in

    it! Hackbright helped train women to become programmers and find jobs in the industry.
  8. Change The Ratio Engineering teams and engineering search results don't

    have to be male-dominated. Make a difference by increasing industry-level technical women -- volunteer, mentor, recruit, and HIRE underrepresented groups.
  9. Historically, women in tech are not new. Women have been

    an integral part of programming since the beginning (Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, ENIAC programmers, women at NASA).
  10. To Change the Ratio, We Need to Create & Identify

    More Role Models Julie Durham, CTO, UnitedHealthcare Nancy Flores, CTO, McKesson Gerri Martin-Flickinger, CTO, Starbucks Raji Arasu, CTO, Autodesk Marianna Tessel, CTO, Intuit Kimber Lockhart, CTO, One Medical Bridget Frey, CTO, Redfin Rowena Yeo, CTO, Johnson & Johnson Julie Averill, CTO, Lululemon Jenny Gonsalves, CTO, Lyra Health
  11. Best Practices Build your network before you need it. Find

    a way to share your industry insights online for posterity. Identify your passions. Find a way to give back, work on a hobby or side hustle to recharge. Find a way to surround yourself with people who have your best interests at heart, or shared values.
