Empowering women in technology and business

Women share a unique perspective and approach to business; they are using innovative technology to reach customers and utilize data in unprecedented ways. Women especially understand that it’s not the technology itself that is important, but what connections, solutions and changes it enables you to make.

Dell’s Women Powering Business initiative helps women entrepreneurs and technologists expand their networks while offering them the technology solutions that can make the business of their dreams a reality. You can join other female business leaders from around the globe via Twitter and LinkedIn as we celebrate the impact of women-owned businesses on the global economy.
