SpotXchange Supports Women in IT

Although women today comprise half the world’s population and more than half of the U.S. professional workforce, they play only a small role in inventing the technology of tomorrow. SpotXchange is helping change that. Having more women at the center of innovation brings the broadest set of problem-solvers to the table; and at a time when technology drives economic growth, it can yield a larger and more competitive workforce.

SpotXchange is a national leader in recruiting and retaining women in technology. We’re a very active member of the National Center for Women &IT (NCWIT), and as one of NCWIT’s Pacesetter organizations, we have aggressive recruiting and retention goals to attract and retain more technical women. SpotXchange focuses on creating a rewarding work environment that is inclusive to all types of people, not just women. If you’re a woman in tech and are looking for a job, or know someone who is, check out our technical job openings here.

pacesetters

Leaders like Google + SpotXchange as Pacesetters

SpotXchange is honored to have been selected as an NCWIT Pacesetter in 2013. As the first startup to be selected into this program, we are excited to stand alongside companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft who are also committed to increasing women’s involvement in technology and computing jobs. Pacesetters is a fast-track program in which senior executives from universities and corporations commit to increasing their numbers of technical women and retain women who are at risk of leaving, resulting in “net new” women for their organizations, and for the country.

redchair

Sit With SpotXchange in The Iconic Red Chair

Sit With Me was created by members of NCWIT to promote awareness of the importance of having women in technology by taking a seat to take a stand in their iconic Red Chair. SpotXchange is the first EA member to purchase a red chair as a symbol of our team not standing for anything less than women’s full participation in technology. By sitting together, we create space to have an honest conversation about challenges and hopes for the future of women in tech. See our team sitting to take a stand.
