We think tech and startup careers are rewarding, fun and something to aspire to. We need images that demonstrate this to women and young girls so we can reach our goal – to teach 1 million women to learn tech skills and create startups by 2025.
We decided to do something about the lack of nice, appealing photography that represents our industry.
This collection of images is available for use under a Creative Commons (Attribution) license. This means that you may copy, distribute, and display the images and as long as you attribute #girlgeekacademy, you are free to use them as you wish.
You are invited to use these photos to show what working in tech really looks like.
If you run a simple search on “Women in Tech” you will notice that there are some strange images. Women holding cables in a server room, women in lab coats and hi-vis, even women who are veterinarians and doctors(?!?).
We don’t think the current stock photo libraries reflect what a career in tech, startups, game development and venture capital actually looks like.
