Contribution Plan: Working Towards Closing the Gender Equity Gap in Tech for the Benefit of All

Through collaboration with our customers, we are striving to make a positive impact on the global talent pool by providing funding and forging partnerships with organizations that are committed to increasing the representation of women in technology leadership positions.

At Works, we recognize the importance of diversity in driving success for companies. We understand that the software industry relies upon creating a welcoming environment that is inclusive of individuals from all walks of life and varied backgrounds and experiences.

Inspiring hope in the minds of talented people worldwide

Women’s involvement in shaping the future is essential, yet they are only making up 14% of the software engineering workforce. The organizations chosen for this cycle of the programme will provide women and girls with tools to improve their economic prospects and educational opportunities.

Knowledge, skills and problem-solving capabilities are derived from education and work experience, irrespective of gender. Women bring different perspectives, roles and experiences to the table, enabling them to gain a different perspective on the world compared to men and to provide unique insights and a more comprehensive understanding of the topic.

Synergy in the workplace can be achieved by taking a proactive approach to the various factors that shape the environment. This enables software development and engineering teams to more effectively and dynamically address any obstacles they may face.

We need to support those who are talented.

For this reason, we have recommended the following non-profit organisations to our customers for them to make gifts to on their behalf.

  • Young Women in Engineering

  • Coder Girls

  • The Unwritten Rules for Black Girls

  • Women in STEM

  • Women of Latino Descent in the Technology Sector

Profound effect on software engineers’ ability to progress in their fields

Established with the ambition of having a lasting impact on the advancement of software engineering, the Giveback Program is and has always been an ongoing initiative. Believing that progress can only be made if everyone does their part to bridge the knowledge and opportunity gaps that hinder the development of women and people of color in the tech industry, we are devoted to doing our part. Specifically, this means offering support to the next generation of leaders by providing funding to organizations that strive to increase the number of women and people of color in computer science and engineering leadership positions.

Be sure to keep up to date with the latest news about these programmes, which are having a significant and lasting impact on people around the world in advance of the new version launch.

Here you may read about our ongoing attempts to give back to the community and about the past issues we’ve published.
