In Hanane's Own Words:
What is the best part of being a woman in the tech industry?
My favorite part of being a woman in tech is empowering and encouraging other women to get into the tech industry and making more positive impact.
There are a lot of fantastic benefits of working in tech, including opportunities, the
chance to work with people all around the world, the ability to work remotely, creating things
and solving problems.
What advice would you give to women considering a career in the tech industry? What do you wish you had known?
Being a woman in tech means that we never stop being curious and asking questions
or challenging ourselves.
My advice based on my experience as a woman in tech:
- Focus on what you love doing, maybe you love coding or designing, focus on that and try to put yourself in a situation where you are able to do that all the time.
- Only compare yourself to you, last week, last month or last year and celebrate your achievements.
- Believe in yourself.
Do you notice a lack of women in technology? If so, why do you think that's the case?
I think the problem starts at an early age, girls are less encouraged to be interested in
computer science and technology, this causes few women to apply to technology fields at
One day I was doing a workshop about web development for a class of tech student
in my city, and I was shocked because I didn't find any girls, only boys, which is
unfortunate because the world and the industry need more women in tech!
