Meet the Team! Olga Abrosimova, Publishing Chair

Each week a member of the #JWiT2016 team introduces themselves to tell us how they #DaretoTech. Connect with us!

I joined JWiT because...

I was fortunate to attend the conference in 2015, just after I got admitted to Johnson. It was an amazing event. I met many inspiring women who were not afraid to challenge the meaning of "women in tech" and were eager to share their experiences and advice. My goal is to help this conference to grow and extend its reach. JWiT tackles difficult topics and encourages interesting conversations. It is a forum for everybody who is passionate about advancing women in tech and I am certain that I can use my past experience to make the 2016 conference the most impactful yet. We have a great team and I am looking forward to sharing this unique experience with all of my fellow board members.

I #DaretoTech by...

Empowering female start-up founders. Before Johnson, I was working with women entrepreneurs by providing them with customized production solutions for their event needs. I organized pitch competitions, created tailored branding packages and liaised between the entrepreneurs, the funders and the customers. Being at Johnson has exposed me to so many opportunities within tech and now I can see myself contributing to this field in a myriad of ways. I #DaretoTech by not limiting myself to just one role or one field but by exploring and creating my own path and changing what it means to be a woman in technology.
