Teknikkvinnor´s local networks
In late 2018 we launched our Local Networks to allow for more physical meetings, with the same broad base as our digital networks. We are now present in almost every major region of the country, from Luleå up north, Gothenburg to the west and Stockholm in the east. Keep an eye out for upcoming southern networks.
Teknikkvinnor For managers
Teknikkvinnor for Managers is a collaborative effort between Teknikkvinnor and Unionen Chef. This manegerial network serves as a complement to the larger Teknikkvinnor network, and is directed at people identifying as women or non-binary while also working as managers in the tech industry. It is free to join and in order to join one is not required to be a member of Unionen Chef.
The purpose of Teknikkvinnor for Managers is to create a platform within Teknikkvinnor dedicated to managers and executives - professions which can be both challenging and often times lonely. We want more Teknikkvinnor-managers to thrive in their roles, and through that accept more responsibilities and bigger challenges. These people also serve as important role models to other Teknikkvinnor.
Follow us on LinkedIn to see where we share hints, thoughts and interesting reads - regardless of
whether if you are already a member of the network or just interested in leadership and might be aiming for a managerial position in the future.
