A Leading Global Network And Event Series For Women In Technology

To power progress and gender equality

Champion Connect Collaborate


EQL:HER is a global network and event series which exists to re-balance gender in the technology sector to secure women an inclusive future across all businesses.

Everything we do is geared at

  • Energising discussions by delivering unique spaces to interact, exchange views and get inspired
  • Engaging a wide audience of women leaders, founders, change-makers and allies from varied backgrounds
  • Elevating women to create real opportunities and drive tangible change

EQL:HER's Commitment

Through our sub-brands EQL:Pledge and Inspiring Fifty, as well as our programme of inspirational events, networking opportunities and robust research, EQL:HER is addressing the challenge of inequity in tech.

Our Mission

To see more women in founding teams, corporate C-Suites, start-up boards, investment committees, and within organisations of all sizes. This will help to combat the current trajectory of technology leaving women behind and close the societal gender inequality gap.
