Courtney Boudreau is our Training Specialist and event host, her happiness over the Women in Tech fair is very easy to spot. She gushes over how outstanding the candidates were!

Getting more women hired in tech
VanHack’s mission is to help tech talents from all over the globe get their international dream job. We believe that bridging the gap between growing companies and skilled professionals infuses the tech industry with diversity, equity, and inclusion. That’s why we are working as hard as possible to help more women get hired.
Even with the pandemic added to the list of challenges women face, are we making progress? “There is a long way to go to increase the number of women in tech,” Boudreau says.
“The events team at VanHack is trying to enhance this with women-specific hiring events and our new conversation circles. Based on feedback from female candidates and peers in the industry, a lack of confidence was a big part of why women leave tech – we are hoping that we can help women in tech feel more confident in their abilities through our efforts. We still only have about 10% of our platform identifying as women. We are always focused and brainstorming new ways of attracting and supporting women to get a tech job”.
