Women in Digital Switzerland first appeared on LinkedIn in 2013 and due to its growing success and commitment of its members, the association was founded in 2016 by Taïssa Charlier, Kelly Hungerford and Natacha Gajdoczki and today is led by Karen Bhavnani and her executive team.

Local chapter events led by volunteers are currently organized in Geneva, Lausanne, Basel, Zurich, Ticino and St Gallen. And we are asked this quite often! - yes, men are welcome to join our meetups and initiatives too!

Who we are

Upcoming events

Our purpose is to encourage thought-provoking dialogue, learnings, connections, and sharing of best practices within our open and welcoming community. We host “for the community and organized by the community” monthly meetings in a variety of learning formats and cover broad topics such as digital transformation, future of work, skills & professional development and more.
