Northern Europe’s greatest community for gender equality in the tech industry
Q by Consid is the leading community for gender equality in the IT industry and tech-related professions in Northern Europe – a meeting place for inspiration, knowledge sharing, and networking.
The role of digitization in societal development has already proven to be significant and is likely to continue reshaping societal structures, the economy, and how we live. At the same time, the IT and tech industry grapples with significant gender equality issues and currently consists of just over 30 percent women. This underrepresentation has a negative impact not only on the industry itself but on society as a whole and poses risks to future infrastructure.
We aim to change this at Q by Consid! We do so through both national and local efforts, where we work to alter structures and norms within the industry and inspire more women and non-binary individuals to pursue careers in IT and tech. Through our initiatives Q Balance, Q Community, Q Meet, Q Mentoria and eQualizer, we strive to create communities for inspiration and knowledge exchange, influence public opinion on the topic, and provide education to help shape an IT industry and future where innovation and equality have a rightful place.
Our work is carried out locally by Q by Consid ambassadors and local representatives in over 40 locations across Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, and Poland.
