This CEO is making sure fellow women technologists have mentors

Jumoke Dada is launching Tech Women Network while supporting her charity initiative for young women entering college. She spoke about both during her "Around the Corner" interview.

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 


Women are underrepresented in the tech field. But they’re there, and they need to support each other.

Jumoke Dada has been working in tech for the past 10 years, most recently as CEO of tech consulting agency Signature RED. She realized that her fellow women technologists needed more resources to grow their skills and more opportunities to connect with each other in order to grow their ranks.

She’s about to launch a platform for women in tech to do that, Tech Women Network, while also running Project ALOE (Assisting Ladies by Offering Essentials), a nonprofit initiative to prepare young women for college with mentorship and care packages.

“Everything that I do has an element of connecting people, educating people and giving back,” Dada said in her “Around the Corner” interview with Generocity Editor Julie Zeglen. “One day I just had the realization that I’m now in the position to be to others what I didn’t have.”
