RightBrain's mission is to grow the number of women in digital-focused roles. 

Only through conscious diversity and inclusion in the workplace can we create an opportunity for further innovation and success and bridge the clear gender gap in the technology sector.

Together with our partners, we have built a career and mentorship platform where women of all career stages can explore their tech interests, and network with peers and industry leaders.
