How Women Tech Founders Is Improving Diversity In The Tech Industry
Terri Brax is the founder of TeacherCare, a national agency that helps families and organizations find highly qualified teachers. Known as the leader in integrating learning into the home, TeacherCare teachers provide a range of services that uniquely solve today’s many home / life / work / education challenges. Her experiences as a female leader growing a tech-powered organization also inspired Brax to launch a startup of a different sort – Women Tech Founders. With a purposeful sense of humor around the challenges women in tech face, this is abbreviated as WTF. The organization is designed to inspire more women to pursue careers in technology, as well as to help share the stories of women who already are making waves in the field.
WTF seeks to support female tech leaders by helping them to start businesses, craft breakthrough solutions, share their stories, and build an intentional community. They do this through offering virtual events, including an annual conference and an annual awards gala that honors successful women in tech. “Women Tech Founders provides a community so female entrepreneurs don’t have to figure it out all on their own,” says Brax.
