Reason #1 Strong Women in IT 2021 Global Report: You will expand your reach
The aim of the Report is to present images of women who established themselves in the new technologies industry all around the world. It is you – the Strong Women – who will be the main characters of the project. You will get to tell your story, promote your business, tell readers what you are planning in the future, and why you love what you do. Presence in media, speeches at conferences, building the image of an expert – that’s part of our work to create Role Models as ”Strong Women in IT”. Our previous reports had thousands of downloads in Poland alone. This year we are going global and the report’s main language will be English. So the potential for reaching a wide audience is significant. You can help us to promote the Report even more by sharing it once it’s out.
Reason #2 Strong Women in IT 2021 Global Report: You will grow your worldwide contact network
International contacts are important and you know it! Do you work with foreign clients? If you don’t yet, who knows when your business will grow enough to expand your activities globally. So having acquaintances in other countries may come in handy at any time! We want to build bridges between different sectors of the industry. Seeing you partner up with other women from the Report will be the best reward for our work.
Reason #3 Strong Women in IT 2021 Global Report: You will get inspired
Women who appear in our Report will share how they succeeded in the new technologies industry. They’ll also tell us what challenges they met on their way.
You may be wondering, what questions we are going to ask our respondents. Here are some of them:
- How did you get into the tech industry?
- What do you consider to be your most outstanding professional achievement?
- What advice would you give someone who’s beginning their professional career, and why?
These are not all of the questions, but we want to keep the rest as a surprise.
Whether you are at the beginning of your career path or you find yourself fulfilled, it will be a stirring experience to hear the stories and opinions of other women in the industry.
Reason #4 Strong Women in IT 2021 Global Report: You will become an inspiration
Every one of us dreams of becoming a role model and an inspiration for younger and less experienced members of the community. Yet inspiration doesn’t only come from great success. You could share the biggest challenge you’ve met on your way, or tell us about your greatest ups and downs. These may be the very things that someone is waiting to hear. Each of us has learned a great deal already, thanks to our experience in the industry. As beginners, we likely would have paid a lot of money to hear the advice we are sharing with others right now.
Reason #5 Strong Women in IT 2021 Global Report: You will get an insight view on the industry
Apart from the questions listed above, we are also planning to collect responses to several anonymous questions regarding women in the new technologies industry.

Some of the topics in the survey will be:
- How do you gain knowledge regarding new technologies?
- What influences the success of women in business?
- In your opinion, do women in business support one another?
- What was your major?
- Are you a member of any business support organizations? E.g., a Club, Foundation, Association, educational initiative.
- For over a year, we have been living in a pandemic. What business lessons have you learned in this new situation?
