Our aim is to provide a community, resources, and opportunities to black women in tech and those who want to get into tech. We have a whole team of women dedicated to making this happen.
The Black Girls In Tech Mentoring Program is intended to associate black women at all phases of their journey with a mentor, offering encouragement and direction, to help mentees understand their untapped capacity and accomplish individual and expert objectives. Overall, our goal is to support them in manoeuvring within their field.
Mentees will be matched with mentors dependent on various factors including, area, industry, and skills these will be discovered during the process of enrolment.

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!
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.
I originally have a background in psychology so I was completely new to the tech space. Black Girls In Tech helped to facilitate my transition from psych graduate to a software developer.
