Mentors

The mentor team is united by one common goal: to share knowledge and spark passion for the ever-changing world of tech. They come from mixed tech backgrounds, carrying a balanced combo of skill and educational expertise, which is important when establishing trust in our mentees.

Our Alumni stories

I had some basic knowledge about programme testing before joining "Women Go Tech". However, my progress was rather slow and I wasn't sure how to accelerate and improve my knowledge. Right away after the first meeting with my mentor, we have started to solve this problem – frequent sessions, continuous learning, conferences, seminars… The whole package of events and experiences, which helped to expand my TECH knowledge to a great extent. Receiving valuable guidance from my mentor, I have now became a competent tester, able to evaluate problems from different angles.

"Women Go Tech" program was my stepping stone into the IT world. Although prior to the participation in the program I had already taken initial steps, but the way towards my career goal - to get my first job as a software developer - seemed complex and chaotic. Opportunity to have mentor’s guidance, get trainings and consultations from professionals, as well as constant support from the community was extremely valuable in pursuing my goal.  Give it a try, it’s definitely worth it!

The most amazing thing at "Women Go Tech" is not only the opportunity to find a mentor but also the fact that they are matched to YOUR profile and current goals, considering your expectations, personality and career plans, even if they are sometimes quite extraordinary :)

When I first noticed "Women Go Tech's" announcement, I took it as a chance to feed my curiosity: what is inside of IT world, from a perspective of not just a user, but also a creator. After the first lectures it caught me with a dream to become a part of it: to change my career to IT after 30 years of experience in textiles field.


It seemed to be absolutely utopic, - but luckily I trusted the idea and team of "Women Go Tech" :) Step by step, guided and encouraged by "Women Go Tech" community, as well as inspiring mentor - I have reached my goal. WGT absolutely has empowered this amazing change of my career, - my respect and gratitude to you all! :)

"Women Go Tech" does not only give access to mentorship with field experts but also to community, where you can find like-minded peers, looking for their path in tech industry. It provides professional guidance, support, and gives you a chance to  build lasting friendships.

I am sure that my mentor's tips and guidance to the right direction was a key factor helping me to land in a new position as a tester. Thanks to "Women Go Tech", I had a chance to visit many different TECH companies, which increased my motivation to become a professional in this field, so that I could be in the same level with its experts and speak with them in thei language.

My advice –  find out what you TRULY WANT, develop an action plan accordingly and implement it step by step, without having any doubt that "you might not succeed". You will.

"Women Go Tech" is not only one of the best programmes I've ever participated but it is also a mesmerising community, which empowers you to start seeking for your goals. It is a huge motivation boost when you need it the most and a priceless experience. During this programme, I've started implementing my tech idea, I met many brave women and with the help of my great mentor acquired my dream position.

I would like to encourage people who are interested in engineering but lack the courage to make changes in their career – from my own experience, I can tell that having the right motivation one can  achieve a significant breaktrough even in short periods of time. Myself, I have started studying mechanical engineering without any prior knowledge of this area, since I decided to shift my career after 10 years of managing a business. The experience and tips by the mentor I met during "Women Go Tech" programme helped me clarify my career goals and I have already landed a job in an engineering company.
