The primary goal of the [email protected] is to help women pursue and continue to develop careers in and around technology.


In Fall 2018, UCSF’s Diversity and Inclusion Staff Certificate Program convened a group of four women for on-going discussion and collaboration based on their job roles in technology. For their final capstone project, what initially had been a casual idea for a Women-in-Tech podcast quickly evolved into a much larger initiative, specifically devoted to building a community for women technologists with aims to address the gender gaps within the UCSF tech community. Ana Buenaventura, Kathleen Grusenki, Suria Sadat, and Alyssa Tecklenburg continued to meet outside of the certificate program and formally presented the Women in Tech at UCSF ([email protected]) group to key IT partners. On January 9, 2019 the group successfully kicked off its first event with enormous support from about 100 community members. [email protected] continues to be a member-led organization with plans to expand broadly in the years to come.
