FIIT stands for Females in Information Technology.
Our vision is for 50% of the global information technology workforce to be female*
Our tribe are on different paths. Many are already working in technology, and looking for inspiration and direction to boost their career. Some are graduates looking to start a career in IT, and others are considering a career change, possibly after returning from maternity leave.
Regardless of their journey, our goal is to provide our community with the inspiration, clarity and tools to live a more purposeful career and life.
We’re a Collective
Tamara Klink founded FIIT Collective in October 2017 to create a global support network for females working in tech, or considering information technology as a career.
Our mission is to inspire, support and empower females to live a balanced and purposeful life through a career in information technology.
Tamara’s goal was for a balanced view of the opportunities and challenges for women in tech, and to have contributions from all genders, ages and cultures. That’s why we’re a collective, and why collaboration is one of our brand values.
Here’s an overview of the topics we cover:
- Tech: Tech and App reviews, career advice, book and conference reviews – anything that helps females in information technology with their career. Read more about Tech.
- Wellbeing: improve the physical and mental wellbeing of our community to improve their thinking, productivity and effectiveness. Read more about Wellbeing.
- Balance: explore the importance of self-care practices, relationships and balancing work and family for a sustainable career. Read more about Balance.
We want to provide our community with the inspiration, clarity and tools to start living a more purposeful and balanced life. Find out how you can contribute to FIIT Collective.
