I'm so glad to be a member!

BGIT is an amazing community which has put me in touch with so many like minded young women in the tech industry. Since joining last year and sharing experiences with other members - I gained more confidence in my skills which led to me landing a new front-end role with a salary that better reflected my skills, as well as the courage to share more of my work and branch out into freelancing on the side. I was also recently lucky enough to have placed as runner up in a BGiT competition to win a place on a UI/UX course, which I’m really looking forwards to starting. This community has provided so many great opportunities in such a short time, and I’m excited to see what comes next!

Amazing Support!

Black Girls in Tech has been amazing at helping me break into the tech space. When I first joined as a member I was welcomed and offered very useful advice and opportunities! I am gratefully for the support I received whilst starting my journey into tech. I hope other women get the same experience with BGIT.
