100 Women in Tech to Follow & Learn From

More and more women break into the tech industry. The proportion of women working in large tech companies increases year after a year. Online magazines like Forbes regularly publish articles about inspirational and influential female leaders in tech who set the bar because these women are not only outstanding in their field but also educate, inspire, and connect women in technology.

When I started this blog post, I wanted to list the most influential and inspirational women working in tech, however, as I dived deeper, I realized there are so many women in the world that contribute actively to the tech community through blog posts, vlogs, and podcasts, and support women and underrepresented groups that I ended up with 100 Women in Tech you need to follow and learn from. 

The women listed in this blog post come from all around the world and from different backgrounds. They are from Nigeria, and the UK, from the US, Malaysia, Arabia, Pakistan, Germany, Jamaica, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Estonia, the Philipines, Sweden, Finland, Kenya, India, Libya, and Ukraine. Some started in tech, and others transitioned. But what connects them all is their drive and energy to provide valuable insights into the tech world for other women that are interested in tech.
