Triangirls is a collective of ladies in design & tech who hang out, discuss work and life, and empower each other to continue being awesome. A pun on 'triangles' - our femme-friendly events are open to folks* who identify as women or non-binary.
The community exists to provide an environment to learn from each other, empower and to facilitate collaboration in each others growth.
Anna believes that each and every one of us has a voice that needs to be heard.
After being exposed to a negative workplace culture early in her career, she decided to focus on encouraging development, diversity and inclusion, by finding others who shared these goals and who wanted to talk about their experiences.
By meeting and starting discussions with people in similar situations, it became clear that conversations led to a collective to desire to encourage and inspire one another towards greater things. Triangirls is the product of a shared interest in the improvement of every member’s life, both professionally and personally.
Rachael spent the majority of her career to date being the only woman in the company. After speaking to other designers about this, she began to realise that this was a common occurrence, one too readily accepted as the norm.
By opening up the conversation with other minorities in tech, and seeing the challenges faced in the workplace, she knew that this had to change.
Rachael realised that she could be part of facilitating an environment where women can work together to build confidence and ensure we get equal opportunities throughout our careers.
