We established Women in DevOps in 2017 specifically to address the issue of gender imbalance in the DevOps industry.
Our aim is to help close the DevOps gender gap, by empowering women to create innovative solutions, encourage organisations to retain women in their communities and to promote gender equality. We are a not-for-profit committed to creating an open and inclusive community and inspiring the female DevOps leaders of the future.
Women in DevOps was born. After working with numerous women in DevOps we realised how very imbalanced the industry is. We wanted to create a social movement that empowers those whose voices were not heard and carve out a community which addressed this issue.
We held our first conference at Improbable’s offices with speakers from Sony, Deliveroo and Improbable. We went on to hold events at Expedia, Photobox and Facebook. We also delivered our first presentation in Rio de Janeiro on the ‘importance of a diverse workforce’ a topic close to our hearts. We discussed our strategy, insight and understanding of how organisations can diversify their teams.
We have since collaborated with Deloitte, Sainsbury’s, Financial Times and Facebook. Started to conduct research to help us understand our community and published our first white paper. Launched Women In DevOps in the Irish market and had our first meetup in Dublin in collaboration with Walmart labs.
Build our community and develop mentoring opportunities in the US and launch our first Women In DevOps in the US, Los Angeles to be precise and Dublin.
Women in DevOps will expand to Seattle and New York City and aims to be the globes most prestigious women in DevOps group with over 4,000 members.
