About Us

EmmsTechnology (also styled EMMSTECH) is a nonprofit grassroots movement started in October 2018 during a spontaneous Fika between 4 women. 4 women that saw the underrepresentation of Women of colour in the field of Technology and Entrepreneurship and the lack of opportunities created for women of colour, by women of colour.


At this first meeting, EMMS (which stands for the original 4 founders first names: Eleonore, Maryam, Mariana, and Samira) decided to organise our first workshop to bring tech knowledge to WOC. We continued with meetups, courses and more events, offering a variety of WOC speakers and teachers in an aim to empower, educate and uplift women and girls of colour and the diverse, underrepresented communities in tech.


We aim to provide innovative and meaningful content and want to create a shift in the discussion of diversity and inclusion within tech by putting these communities at the centre and creating a conversation with them and not about them.

In charge to give my team right prerequisites to execute our workshop and events and give best experience to our attendees. Planning and executives broad reach out to companies, form partnership and sponsorship.
