Why Women in Voice

What makes Women in Voice different from the Women in Tech movement overall is the field specialization. Voice is a burgeoning field. Even so, the field is already dominated by a homogenous perspective that has very few women. This can be seen in podcast hosts, featured speakers, workshops, leaders of organizations, hiring practices, and demographic makeup of companies. This is no surprise but it is something we can work on.

Women in Voice believes that there should absolutely be more female voices in technology. From the hardware to the marketing, women should be represented and valued. Women in Voice overlaps with Women in Tech in many ways.

Many have done work in this space for years, but only recently has this work come into the spotlight. Some women don’t know that the field exists or that they could be part of it. Some don’t yet have the technical skills or confidence to find their spot in the field.

We want to encourage everyone to find their place, be valued, and find their voice in this space if they want to. This is why the Women in Voice organization exists.

BLACK. LIVES. MATTER.

Women in Voice is a global organization, but to stay quiet right now is not an option during this tumultuous time in the USA. Racism underlies cultures and countries, explicit or hidden in different biases and behaviors, and working to change it is a systemic and lifelong mission.

We renounce white supremacy in all its forms.

STOP ASIAN HATE
