What they’re saying

“I Iove how SheDares was designed. It was a very seamless learning experience with blended content which is perfect for me. It gave me a lot of confidence to virtually meet so many women in tech and read their career path and experiences. It really felt like a sorority and I could relate to someone that succeeded.

– Anna, Construction

“The SheDares program challenges you to think beyond the boundary. Activate the growth mindset in you. Tech is involved in all industries even the media, education and healthcare. Dare to try and dare to fail is the way forward.

– Geraldine, Administration

“Great self-paced program, that really made me (re)think my opportunities in Tech industry. It also gives direction towards further education and where I could reach it. I have been taking training courses in Tech through the years, and I was a bit lost, feeling incapable to really pivot into the Tech industry. But, after She Dares, now I know the way to go and how to tell my story.

– Leila, Manufacturing
