With some 1,500 members scattered across 37 cities, Women in Digital (WiD) is a sizable organization of women in digital marketing.
During Philly Tech Week 2018, the group launched its Philadelphia chapter with local copywriter Nicole Hallberg as “City Champion” and Wilmington, Del.-based Collie Turner as vice president. The group aims to accelerate “the advancement and growth of women in digital creative fields” through in-person meetups and a virtual network.
“As a member-based network that connects women with resources and each other, the Philadelphia branch meets monthly on the second floor at Strangelove’s in Philadelphia; WiD’s biggest perk, though, is probably its Slack channel, which members can access to network both locally and nationally,” our sister site Technical.ly Delaware reports.
The group will host its next meetup July 18 at Strangelove’s in Center City. Though access to the meetup is free, the group charges a monthly membership of $25.
(Another group in a similar space, that also aims to connect the Philly-Wilmington corridor, is Great Dames.)
Philly Tech Week yielded the launch of at least one more local chapter for women-in-tech groups: the industry-agnostic Brazen Philly, which works on supporting female entrepreneurs and helping them grow their business (and recently had an activation at the PHL Innovation Picnic).-30-
