Together we empower women through technology

Techionista has (re)trained hundreds of women to start a career in IT and tech. We do this together with companies who think that our mission is important and like to do their share to make it happen. Do you want to become part of our community?

Join our mission

Techionista is more than an academy for women. We are a tight community that is growing and becoming more international every day. 

As a business partner, you are an important part of this community. Depending on the partner package of your choice, you get access to our students (even before they graduate), our large alumni network, various marketing opportunities, and even customized training.

But more importantly, your support of Techionista Academy is a valuable and effective investment in the future of women and therefore an investment in more diversity in the world of IT & Tech.


What’s in it for you?

The three most important reasons to become a Techionista business partner

Investment in diversity

Actions speak louder than words. More and more companies are actively addressing issues of diversity and inclusion. An investment in the Techionista Academy is a valuable and effective investment in the future of women and therefore in more diversity in the world of IT & Tech.

Access to female talent

Depending on your partner package of choice, you will have access to our students (even before they graduate) and our alumni network. Our community currently consists of 700+ higher educated women with lots of work experience in different fields. Meet them at one of our (speed dating) events!

Tailor-made courses

Since this year Techionista Academy started offering customized training in Data & AI, AWS, and soon Salesforce. Together with our business partners, we also launched our first international class this year! Do you want to give your current staff further training or would you like to invest in training new talent? Get in touch and we will inform you about the possibilities!

About our courses

Techionista Academy is currently expanding and developing more and different courses. Among other things, we will soon start an AWS track and a Salesforce track. 

At the moment our main course is the Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI course (and courses that are related) which prepares women for a career in Data and AI, for example as a Data Engineer, Data Analyst, or Data Scientist.

Our courses always consist of a Hard Skill component as well as a Career Skill component.

Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI Track

Hard skills

After completing the online Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI course our talents hold the following three Microsoft certificates: Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900), Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst (PL-300), and Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure (DP-203). They will also have gained experience working with Python, SQL, Power BI, and of course Azure.

Career skills

Techionista strongly believes in the combination of Hard and Career skills. That is why we also focus on building career skills such as Personal Branding, Networking, and efficient communication. Besides this, our students also get to work on in-depth business cases from our business partners.

Sjoerd Hobo

“I immediately fell in love with the Techionista concept. First of all because you educate talented women in the field of technology, but also because of the beautiful people behind the company. Tamira and Vivianne work with such great passion and put so much experience and soul in this brand and the training. It’s a great fit for us.”

Annika Grosse

“We feel it’s really important to help women understand the opportunities open to them in tech and gain the skills needed for an enriching career. We’re proud to be working with Techionista Academy, which, like ourselves wants to inspire, motivate and educate women wanting to work in the IT/tech sector.”

Nathaniel Taylor-Leach

Social Impact Manager at DataCamp

“We are proud to partner with Techionista to help upskill women to get jobs in the tech industry through DataCamp Donates. Our mission is to make data education more equitable and Techionista has been particularly efficient in helping us reach this goal.”

Marianne Faro

Managing Director at Itility

“It always feels great to get fellow-ladies interested in tech and data. That is why we love the concept of the Techionista Academy. Being able to bring value with data is such a wonderful field of expertise – and partnering with Techionista allows to grow that field.” 

Xander Kuiper

Chief Technology Officer at TeamValue

“Diversity is not only a matter of the balance between men and women in your organisation. It’s also the sum of experience level, previous career, personality and drive. And that’s where we see a great match with Techionista. A dynamic team with not necessarily like-minded people is what makes us powerful! The Microsoft Data Track gives you a kickstart as a Business Intelligence Consultant at TeamValue.”
