This is Samaneh. I am truly grateful that I had the opportunity in 2017 to create the Women in IT (kvinnor.it) community which has grown beyond my imagination. It has always been my highest intention to collaborate with companies that raise the bar in many areas, and organize events that are worth your time.
In parallel to my full-time job in the IT industry, I managed all the required activities for this community during my spare time and took care of the costs to keep this community running. Of course, I am thankful to all the companies that opened their office to us and hosted these events.
I get inspired each time we meet, and keep thinking about more ideas for this community. I feel that finally the right time has arrived. I have been working on multiple exciting projects. You might have noticed that I finally created a website for kvinnor.it. It took me (the backend engineer) six years to create a website with the help of WordPress. No, really, jokes aside, I intentionally only focused on using Meetup until now. It was important for me to achieve a goal with limited resources.
I also recently created a page for this community in LinkedIn. Follow Women in IT (kvinnor.it) page if you haven’t already.
Now, let me introduce you to WomenLogs where I will share news related to this community. I always respect your time and don’t intend to spam you. Event invites and reminders continue to be sent in Meetup. So, if you’d like to get notified about new WomenLogs and the upcoming projects, subscribe here and follow the LinkedIn page.
There are more exciting projects in the making. Stay tuned. To fund all of these projects and expand the community further, I started multiple partnerships, for example, Amazon affiliate links where I will introduce you to books or products that I genuinely love. If you or your company would like to sponsor this community and the upcoming projects, don’t hesitate to contact me.
As always, I value your feedback and suggestions. Please reach out or let us have a fika if you have anything on your mind.
All the best,
