For the past few weeks, I’ve had opportunities to speak with some women leaders in the tech industry about their experiences in the New York tech ecosystem. From these conversations, I was able to get an idea on why it is hard for women in tech and how NYC has been able to stand out as a front runner for gender equality.

Opportunities, expertise, high-level education and abundant access to resources make NYC the ideal place for career changers and ambitious entrepreneurs. All of the excellent women founders and allies mentioned in this article are just an example of the driving force behind NYC’s gender diversity in tech.
