About Digital Women Kansas City
We believe all women can embrace who they are, can define their future, and can change the world.
In 2015, some savvy, enterprising women with digitally centered careers decided to build a professional organization. While their digital experience was not hands-on technical, they wanted to build a community where they could feel at home alongside their technical sisters. They wanted to create place where women could always engage with authenticity and honesty; where integrity was a non-negotiable.
Digital Women Kansas City is a professional network of women working in digital. Our careers range from design to IT, media or marketing, and anyone on the digital spectrum belongs. We are committed to learning, mentoring, collaborating and growing together.
We are Business Owners, Project Managers, Engineers, Marketers, Designers, and others, who want to learn from each other and build upon one another’s strengths. We focus on job and professional development, networking, project and team connection, soft skills development, community development and mentoring.
