MongoDB and Girls in Tech Join Forces to Empower Women in Ireland


DUBLIN, Ireland, April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Girls in Tech Dublin, the Irish chapter of the well-known global organisation focused on empowerment, engagement and education of women in technology, is proud to announce its most recent corporate partnership with the leading modern, general purpose database platform, MongoDB, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDB).

MongoDB and Girls in Tech are both committed to supporting and empowering women to lead and innovate in the tech industry. Both organisations have a mutual ambition to increase female engagement and increase the number of women in senior technology roles.

Commenting on the partnership, Coral Movasseli, Managing Director Girls in Tech Dublin, said: “Dublin continues to be a central hub for technology companies to set up their international headquarters, because of the availability and concentration of diverse and multicultural talent. The hiring landscape has never been so competitive, and attracting and retaining the right talent has never been more important.

“Through our partnership with MongoDB, Girls in Tech Dublin will have access to a wide range of learning, mentorship and networking opportunities. We see this as a terrific opportunity for Girls in Tech Dublin and MongoDB to tackle diversity head on in Ireland, by equipping women in technology with skills, knowledge and an international outlook that will help them succeed and stand out in the war for talent and diversity.”

Clare Scally, Escalation Manager at MongoDB and a member of the MongoDB Women’s Group, said: “Twenty years ago when I started in technology it was a very different landscape. I was at times the only female on the team and occasionally felt isolated. For me, the love of technology helped me overcome that. Then more recently while working at places like MongoDB I didn’t encounter those issues at all. I think that’s down to a strong culture as well as specific initiatives like the Women’s Group, equal parental leave, signing the Parity Pledge and many others. We are making progress as an industry but we still have far to go. I hope our partnership with Girls in Tech Dublin can help create an industry where the next generation doesn’t even have to think about it. So that we think of ourselves not as ‘women in technology’ but simply as great technologists."

MongoDB will also support one of Girls in Tech’s most important programs in Ireland. The Stepping Up mentorship program is a unique initiative that provides women across generations with knowledge, tools and access to the right people.

Joe Drumgoole, EMEA Director of Developer Advocacy at MongoDB, said: “It has been fantastic to see what Girls in Tech Dublin is achieving and we couldn’t be prouder to get an opportunity to support them. Diversity and inclusion are incredibly important to MongoDB. Not only is it the right thing on a societal level, it’s also the right thing for the business and the industry at large. I’m excited to be involved in encouraging and nurturing the next great generation of developers.”
