Local communities that make a difference: #sharing is #caring

Updated: Mar 15


We are all part of different communities and movements.


They shape the way we connect, engage, and collaborate.

Being part of diverse communities, I have learned so much and I have seen so many great best practices and amazing servant leaders who are leading their communities by example.

I want to share with you a few wonderful communities I am supporting, there are a few others where I am not contributing, but they are equally amazing and worth mentioning: We shape Tech, techface, womenplusplus, Girls in Tech Switzerland, PWN, Féminin Pluriel, etc.


A community is only as great as you make it: bring your contribution and add value through your time, expertise or make introductions

Don't go alone, go together!

Here are my 5 communities who are contributing to my growth:

What I love
