New Cycle of Women in Tech Program Started

Synergy and linking successful women from start-up communities and AmCham member companies will take place within the Women in Tech mentoring program.

In a new cycle of the Women in Tech mentoring program participants will have an opportunity to exchange technological and IT ideas and increase the leadership capabilities needed in the modern technology and IT industry. This will differ from last year's cycle, which was exclusively dedicated to representatives of AmCham member companies, The idea is to expand the program and open it to the representatives from start-up community who will now adopt the role of mentees.

During the opening ceremony at Marsh Open Space, the participants were addressed by Zorica Mihajlović from the Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade and Diana Gligorijević, Marketing Manager of Telegroup and an Untitled Governor of the AmCham Board of Governors. They pointed out that connecting women from the technological and IT spheres is of great importance for their professional development and integration, as well as for the development of soft skills. In this way, they can serve as  role models for young girls wanting to start their careers in these industries.

After the opening remarks, there was a session of 'speed dating', after which the participants were connected in teams composed of both groups. The program's three-month duration will feature workshops and seminars especially created for this occasion and aimed at developing interpersonal skills and business ideas.

The program was developed and organized in cooperation with the Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade and supported by ICT Hub, Impact Hub and the Startit Center.
