Tina Vinod: Bridging the Gender Divide in Tech, 1 Technologist at a Time

Tina Vinod’s presentation from the Finding Ada Conference 2020.


The gender divide in tech is a reality. Almost 63% of women in tech who re-enter the industry feel that a break was detrimental to their career progression. This talk will cover VAPASI the ThoughtWorks’ certified free technical women returnee program for women technologists on a career break. The training program is designed for women who are keen to get back to tech. It has a holistic approach to inclusion that goes beyond just training to empowering and driving positive social change.
