NEW YORK, FEB 5, 2021 – Women in Tech is thrilled to announce its Silver partnership with EPAM Systems,
Inc., a leading global provider of digital platform engineering and development services. With more than 50,000 members worldwide, they’re accelerating the fight to close the gender gap and empower women by helping them embrace technology.
Women in Tech and EPAM’s first order of business is to build a talent marketplace on www.women-in-tech.net, and take to the stage together at the Women in Tech Global Forum in Sharjah, UAE, this coming February.
Partnering with key industry players, like EPAM, will accelerate change on a global scale regarding how we feel about gender in the workplace. “Women in Tech is extremely proud of how far it has come and is excited about the very real possibilities it can unlock with the help of industry partners,” said Carine de Meyere, CCO of Women in Tech. “With companies like EPAM at our side, not only can Women in Tech give community access to more job opportunities, but also encourage a broader cultural shift in a traditionally male-dominated industry,” adds Ayumi Moore, Founder of Women in Tech.
EPAM is no stranger to innovation—appearing on Forbes 25 fastest-growing Public Tech Companies list since 2013 and ranked as the top IT services company on Fortune’s 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list in 2019 and 2020. According to Shamilka Samarasinha, Global Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at EPAM, their aim is to establish a more diverse workforce, share their industry expertise with impactful community initiatives and commit their voice publicly to supporting women in the future of work.
“There is a lot of focus currently in the technology industry on attracting, retaining and developing female talent, but there is a lot more than can be done,” said Elaina Shekhter, CMO & Head of Strategy at EPAM. “We’re pleased to partner with Women in Tech, a global movement to empower women in STEM. Their mission is very much aligned with EPAM’s core values. Together, we can empower women all over the world and help expand the community of female technology professionals.”
With the success of their first 24-hr Virtual World Tour and the launch of a talent marketplace, Women in Tech has become the number one destination for women to exchange STEM knowledge, meet new role models and participate in mentoring programs, take master classes, learn about job opportunities and receive online support.
