Girls in Tech — Phoenix partners with LeadForCareer, to launch an AI-powered professional network to mentor and empower women in technology. Female-founder Yumi Alyssa Kimura, CEO and co-founder of LeadForCareer, created the mentoring and social platform to help women grow their careers. “Women in the tech industry leave at a rate of 45% higher than men,” says Yumi. “Connecting them with like-minded mentors can help with retention, and feelings of belonging within their companies and within the tech world as a whole.”
Girls in Tech — Phoenix is attacking this problem by creating meaningful interactions for women, which were previously difficult to find. With so few women leaders at the top of organizations, through LeadForCareer’s AI-powered platform, Girls in Tech — Phoenix connects mentors and mentees. Male users are welcome to use the platform, learn about the issues and be a part of the solutions.
Mentorship is an essential part of the leadership equation. It enables us to talk through ideas, mistakes, opportunities for growth and sometimes, get us through the hard days. The right mentor will have an exceedingly positive impact on your private life, your career and the performance of your business. Together with LeadForCareer, Girls in Tech — Phoenix aims to give men and women an equal playing field to make the right connections to be mentored.
