About TechWomen

TechWomen is a group of passionate New Zealand tech, digital and ICT focused individuals from leading organisations that work together, with the support of NZTech, to help address one of the major challenges for the successful growth of technology in New Zealand – a shortage of women in tech roles.


We work together to help inspire girls into technology, support the growth of women in tech roles and to help develop policy and actions for improving diversity in the tech workplace.

Mentoring circles

Mentoring Circles

Finding a mentor can be challenging, so we are launching a mentoring circles programme for NZTech Members. Our programme will match two mentors with six women. The women will benefit from having access to a broader range of insights and viewpoints, from both their peers and mentors.

Our Events

TechWomen is a community of hundreds of women in technology roles across the country, that get together at connect events to network, workshop and hear from other successful women tech leaders.

TechWomen awards


TechWomen actively encourages women to enter relevant awards and recognition programmes. We work with many organisations that run awards programmes to review their process to reduce barriers around women being successful in achieving recognition for their work.

Reutrun to IT

Return to IT

The Return to IT programme assists New Zealand women who have taken a career break from the digital technology sector – whether it be for children, family, or any other reason – to return to work in the digital technology workforce
