Welcome to our Brand Ambassador programme

 

Our brand ambassadors play a crucial role in representing our brand and sharing our message with followers and our community. The goals of our brand ambassador program are to actively involve our community, increase brand awareness and expand our organisation’s reach and support across the world. Our community audiences are black women already in tech, and black women looking to get into tech. We also aspire to inspire more black women and girls to get into tech. We are looking to expand in Europe and the rest of the world.

 

Our Purpose, Vision and Mission

 

Our vision is to normalise black female excellence. We actively build bridges of opportunities in tech by enabling black female talents to excel and companies to have access to black women of talent. Our mission is to inspire, support, and connect the tech sphere to allow more black women to excel and tech companies to perform better through diversity & inclusion. We elevate black women to inspire black women and young black girls to put themselves forward to new opportunities so they can change the dynamic in the tech space.

 

 

Brand ambassador roles

 

We believe that success is better when achieved as a community. This is why we created our brand ambassador roles to allow you to actively support us. You volunteer your time in exchange for the opportunity to give back, raise your profile in the tech industry, raise for speaker profile and represent our GTA Black Women In Tech brand.
