Founded in 2014, AWN has continued to grow towards establishing the current iteration, hosting quarterly & on-going initiatives. In 2017, AWN hosted its first set of quarterly events, opening our doors to local partnerships. In addition, AWN launched the internal mentorship program, and had its first annual celebration for International Women’s Day. 2018 brought new initiatives including the AWN Feature Story series and our first mission-aligned fundraiser in support of Canada Learning Code. We continue to expand our community partnerships through our events – most recognizably being our sponsorship of Afro Chic’s 2019 festival, specifically their AI diversity in action session which featured a live conversation with Bina 48, one of the worlds most advanced social robots.
Mission & Vision
AWN empowers and celebrates women to reach their full potential while advocating for equitable conditions in the tech industry.
The mission of the Achievers Women’s Network is to empower, enable, and inspire women in technology to guide and develop their own careers without limitation through sharing information, best practices, and education.
As part of the Achievers Women’s Network (AWN) efforts to highlight female leaders in different stages of their career throughout the organization, this series of interviews aims to get to our origin stories, discussing journeys into tech, overcoming challenges & strategies on upskilling.
Humans of Achievers
AWN’s Human of Achievers initiative seeks to share the stories of Achievers as a whole. This series engages with employees who are disrupting the norm and driving knowledge share that is focused around AWN’s mission & priorities. Inspired by the compelling @humansofny.
