A greek community of people dedicated to promote women's engagement with technology & science. Its main activities consist of free workshops, meetups open to anyone interested, as well as partnerships with other tech communities and local chapters of Thessaloniki.
We first met at a conference considering women and technology where most of us were volunteers. While discussing this issue with the rest of the attendees, we felt it was our obligation to raise awareness about it, get together and do something. That was when SheSharp was born.
Currently, our core team consists of almost twenty members, coming from various different backgrounds. We are all interested in promoting equality and knowledge transfer, as well as cultivating a positive culture of mutual respect, through free seminars and workshops open to anyone interested.
As the tech industry is growing, the need to fix the gender gap becomes more vital. We, as a team, hope to inspire girls to get more involved with technology and science. More and more events and workshops are going to be organised! Stay tuned...
