Meet the leading Role Models in Tech

Nelly Hajizadeh, Novartis

This campaign is introducing role models, who inspire and empower other women to take the lead and
build their best career in tech.

Campaign Overview


In March 2022, we invited committed companies to change the status quo with a cross-collaborative approach. The campaign kicked off by defining the commitments for each company based on common defined focus areas in April and May 2022.


The commitments will be translated into an actional plan, which will be implemented within the next 9-12 months. Together, we identify common actions and support each other defining the best approach to reach these commitments.


In March 2023, we will be reviewing the result of the commitments of each company. Not only will we report the tangible results of the campaign, but we will also be presenting their achievements by telling the stories of the people, who increased the diversity in their tech teams.
