The F Factor community is more than just talk

If you’re a woman working in the unique subculture of technology we will support you with connection, resources, mentoring and more so you can navigate a successful and rewarding career.

What is the F Factor?

When you become a member of The F Factor, you join a holistic support network of talented women in tech. You’ll learn from and support each other, and give back to the community.

Being a member of The F Factor is more than just talk – it’s being part of something bigger than self. You’ll create strong connections with women on similar journeys to yours, gain opportunities with the most progressive tech employers, and be inspired by leaders and influencers in and around the tech industry.

So whatever flavour of tech, whatever level, if you value connection and support, The F Factor community has your back.

Inclusion & belonging

The F Factor community welcomes and celebrates all women working in tech careers:

WOMEN DEFINITION// Women – transgender and cisgender, all those who experience or have experienced oppression as women, including non-binary and gender non-conforming people and all those who identify as women. Self-definition is at the discretion of the individual.

F Factor Mentorship Program

A mentor is like a career coach, therapist, friend and cheerleader all rolled into one! Essentially, it’s someone that has experience, wisdom and a perspective that can help you grow professionally. A mentor and mentee connect regularly and discuss career challenges, goals and successes. And it works both ways - mentoring others is hugely rewarding too!

The F Factor’s mentorship program has helped hundreds of women advance their careers since it began in 2019. And studies have shown that people who are mentored receive higher compensation, better promotions and increased job satisfaction. So what are you waiting for?
