We help you ensure that the women in tech in your organization thrive.
We help you understand how women experience daily work life. Then working together
we define interventions to help disrupt bias, improve practices, and build team cohesion.
Recruiting women is not enough if they do not stay. Retention depends on women’s daily experience with their teams, co-workers, and managers. Do they experience the work-life conditions in the @Work Experience Framework? Do they know what to do to be successful? Do they feel a part of a dynamic team up to something that matters?
