TechMae Seeks Women in Technology for Female-Oriented Social Network

Atlanta, Georgia – Professional women who work in the technology industry are invited to join TechMae, the world’s first female-oriented social network. Specifically created for women in technology, TechMae is being developed with the intention of becoming an interactive networking platform where women can interact socially to encourage, inspire and support each other.

TechMae’s creator, Pamela Nicole Hibbler, understands first-hand the challenges that women in the male-dominated tech industry face. While pursuing her master’s degree in cybersecurity she found that the network of women she could reach out to was limited. It was then that she decided to create a community where women like herself could find one another.

“It’s tough. Always being the only woman in the room takes a lot of getting used to,” says Hibbler.  “It can be intimidating. And let’s face it, many of us have had to face discrimination and harassment. This is why I want to create an online community for us, a place where we can not only support each other, but let our hair down and have fun too.”

The statistics about women in tech are startling. Women own only 5% of startups, and earn only 28% of computer science degrees. Women under the age of 25 earn an average of 29% less than their male counterparts.  Only 11% of executive positions at Silicon Valley companies are held by women.

And it doesn’t look as if much progress is being made. The percentage of women in computer roles was at its highest point in 1991 at 36%, but it has steadily declined since then to a mere 25%.

 

“We have a lot to talk about,” says Hibbler. “Women need to know they’re not alone, and that they can help change the world for the next generation,”

 

Hibbler is looking for a group of industry professional women to sign up for early beta testing – business women, those who have a background in IT or computer science, and also women who are self-taught.  They will be invited to join the site and provide feedback about their experiences and any problems they encounter. The feedback will be analyzed and used to make improvements to the platform before it’s officially launched.

 

“I’m looking for any professional woman who has something of value to offer the community,” explains Hibbler. “It’s time to let our voices be heard!”
