🔍 Lipstick and Tech’s Mission
My mission with my multi-platform blog is to empower women and allies to embrace their passion of technology, show that women in tech are not always just interested in technology, and stop the “alpha male bro who stays up all night” archetype of the incredible career female technologists, technicians, engineers, developers and more.
On Lipstick And Tech, you’ll see posts about career, style and technology topics.
👩🏽💻 The story behind Lipstick and Tech
I wanted a blog that spoke to me, and originally I wanted to just talk about technology, women in tech, etc. But I knew this was not a true depiction of who I was as a person. I’m not the girl that can spend hours talking about a CPU. While important, I also enjoy talking to my friends about makeup, clothing sales- it comes to me naturally. I wanted to provide resources to learn more about technology, discuss career topics, and of course share some fun stylish finds. I finally decided that I had to create such a blog.
The name came to mind because many of my friends used to talk about my lipstick collection… they were not wrong. Almost to the point that I have the same amount of lipstick than I do to other “makeup components”. Hence- Lipstick and Tech. I would then discover a community of fellow nerds that didn’t fit the stereotype.
