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.

"Thanks to WiV, and to all the connections I’ve made through it, for the encouragement to jump in and learn new things!"

“I am the first woman in tech from my family.”

"Honestly, I feel recharged by the events I attended. Amazing community of people."

Women in Voice Stands Against Global Injustice

We renounce white supremacy in all its forms. As a global organization, we recognize racism underlies cultures and countries, explicit or hidden in different biases and behaviors, and working to change it is a systemic and lifelong mission.

BLACK. LIVES.
MATTER.

To stay quiet right now is not an option during this tumultuous time. This is not just an American problem. 

STOP ASIAN
HATE.

We join in the call to end the increasingly violent, ongoing, and deadly attacks against people of Asian descent.

STAND WITH
UKRAINE.

Women in Voice stands with Ukraine. Our hearts are with our community in Ukraine during this unfathomable time.

STAND AGAINST
ANTI-SEMITISM.

Women in Voice stands in solidarity with our Jewish community around the world, against Anti-Semitism.

WOMEN. LIFE.
FREEDOM.

There is no more urgent time for AI leaders to improve English to Persian and Persian to English language applications.
