Women in Tech Finland network was born as an idea during the fall of 2012 by Marjo Miettinen and Anne Stenros. Home for the network was found at Technology Industries of Finland, where Mervi Karikorpi and Piia Simpanen worked.
By fall 2013, when the first bi-annual Women in Tech Forum was organized, Pia Erkinheimo also joined the team.
In October 2017, the whole Finlandia Hall with more than 1000 seats was reserved for the 3rd Women in Tech Forum, and by organizing the week for the 2nd time Women in Tech Finland was part of the programme for the centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017.
In June 2018, Women of Aalto started as the new operative team of Women in Tech while Technology Industries of Finland still remained the home of the network.
In January 2020, Inklusiiv became the new home for Women in Tech Network. At the same time, Inklusiiv became also as the new operative team behind the network.
In 2023, Women in Tech Finland community has over 40 member organisations and hosts tens of free and open events every year. We want to encourage and support girls, women and non-binary to consider a career in tech, and provide resources to do so.
