WHAT TECH COMMUNITY LEADERS SAY ABOUT US



Ran Tavory, Reversim


"Baot" is an amazing community of female software engineers that succeeds year after year to motivate women from the industry to take an active part in key technological events.

As the founder of Reversim Summit I am grateful for the amount lecturers and attendees that this community has provided.

The results are visible to all, but behind the scenes a great deal of appreciated work is put into mentoring and professional development.


Amit Zur, JavaScript Israel


Goodess Squad is a monthly event by Javascript Israel where developers meet to contribute to open source projects together.

We set a goal of having a substantial participation of women, and by collaborating with "Baot" we added 2 women members to the organizing team, and raised participation from 0% to 20% on average in following events, as well as having a woman mentor an open source project.


Genady Okrain, Tel Aviv Coffee


One of my goals as the organizer of Tel Aviv Coffee is diversity within our group.

It was challenging bringing different people together, specifically getting more woman to join.

When "Baot" discovered the meetings, the number of women attendees doubled - With the new group of people came new and interesting ideas to discuss and made the meetings more interesting for everyone.
