Project Description

Technology needs more womxn of color at the table!

PROBLEM Representation of BIPOC womxn in tech is grim. According to the studies, just 3% of computing-related jobs are held by African-American women, 6% held by Asian women and 2% held by Hispanic women (source: Built In, 2021), while an overwhelming 63% of women overall have never had a formal mentor during their corporate careers (source: SHRM, 2012).

MISSION Femmecubator is an online mentorship community for BIPOC womxn who want to transform their careers - and the world - through tech. With access to an on-demand mentorship website and app, resources and programming, and a supportive and experienced network of mentor leaders, Femmecubator bridges the gap to lower the barrier to entry for self-taught learners and early career UX Designers and Software Developers who need extra support in their junior years.
