About Women in IT

Women in IT ( is an independent group that empowers women and non-binary within the IT industry. This group is a safe, inclusive, supportive, and inspiring community for everyone working, studying, or interested in IT. Being part of this group should feel like being part of a family where asking questions, sharing stories, and learning from each other is encouraged when we meet.

How it all began

Women in IT ( is the result of a female software engineer, Samaneh Utter, who wanted to build a supportive community within IT.

It all started with weekly female developer lunches at Lindholmen in Göteborg with some colleagues and friends in 2016. The lunches repeated for more than a year and the number of participants grew. It was obvious that there was a need for a community, that is why Samaneh created a Meetup group in 2017 to expand this group further. Many companies have supported and hosted events for this group with diverse and interesting agendas.

As a minority both due to the male-dominated industry and also having Sweden as her second and current home since 2008, it felt important for Samaneh to highlight the power and importance of diversity within this industry.
