    About

    Fanny and Madeleine are both pursuing their masters degrees at the Royal Institute of Technology(KTH).When they both got the opportunity to be a part of the project group for the upcoming DataTjej Conference,they couldn’t say no DataTjej (translated to English - Computer Girl) is an non-profit organisation that works with encouraging more women to work within IT&Tech and facilitate contacts between students and the industry. Having female role models is important in an industry that is male-dominated and both of them hope they can, through DataTjej, let more female IT students find role models and eventually, one day become one as well.
