Our Goals

The Filipinas in Computing community exists not just to raise awareness of issues faced by Filipinas in tech, but principally to promote and celebrate our successes!

We foster conversations about your challenges, coping mechanisms and successes; fostering friendships and mentorships, creating an environment of support, promoting leadership and professional development; and developing diversity in the field of technology by introducing and supporting more Filipinas.

This is the space for Filipinas to connect, share best practices, and inspire one another.
