Defining “Women”

Women in Voice is building community for women in this new technology space. We use the words “woman/women” to refer to anyone who identifies as a female, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, and all minority genders. This absolutely includes trans women. If you feel like you might belong in our community, we bet you do. Women come in all kinds of colors, shapes, and sizes and we support all of them.

FAQ: Are you funded by Amazon or Google?

Women in Voice is an agnostic organization. Our Leadership Team has Leads that work at many companies and with various affiliations, but we share a common mission that is not related to any company.

Beginnings!

We’ve had an enthusiastic welcome from people all around the world! We launched on August 20th, 2018 and in one week had amassed +300 Twitter followers and a Leadership Team of 27 women. Clearly lots of us wanted to build better community and support systems!

Partners and Sponsors

Women in Voice (WiV) is thrilled to be partnering with organizations all around the world. We are grateful to our partners and sponsors who provide venue support, financial support, and other in-kind support.
