Civic Tech Sisters

Open Call

You are a woman. And you have the right to succeed in the technological world!

Civic Tech Sisters is a program for young female leaders from Ukraine and Germany.

The program brings together 20 mentees with 10 mentors (from Germany and Ukraine) to develop a mentee-mentor-relationship over the course of 6 months (June-November).

The aim is to equip young aspiring female leaders with the knowledge of successful female leaders in the Civic Tech sphere and empower them to shape their own leadership role that lies ahead of them.


For this project three organisations joined forces to share their expertise and networks to carry out this German-Ukrainian program together. It is financially supported by the Federal Foreign Office: betterplace lab, 1991 Open Data Incubator, Civil Society Cooperation, Auswärtiges Amt, Goethe-Institut Ukraine.
