Japanese Women in Computing

Rieko Noland

Reiko co-founded Japanese Women in Computing back in 2017 after finding it hard to meet other Japanese women at GHC prior to that year. She saw GHC as a wonderful place to empower women in technology and wanted to share that experience with fellow Japanese women in computing, as Japanese women technologists have particular challenges coming from cultural assumptions around women’s roles and communication in the workplace. Currently, JWiC has about 50 women in their Facebook group who all empower and support one another.
