Started in 2016, our Women in NerdWallet Engineering (WINE) group is a safe space for all women engineers to socialize and support each other. Since then, we have grown tremendously and have hosted/sponsored many events.
We do regularly scheduled lunches as a way to get outside, chat, and try new places!
We sponsored this conference, which gave us many opportunities to meet and network with women from all over the world.
We host company-wide discussions about various topics related to diversity and what we can do as individuals and as a company.
We continue to support each other through various events and activities.
Some other activities we have done as a WINE group:
- Hosted a Women Who Code meetup event
- Hacked in a hackathon that was all women engineers (and won a prize too!)
- Attended various meetups across the bay area
- Organized a Q&A session with leadership groups on salary and promotions gaps
Growing, participating, and supporting WINE has been difficult at times, but extremely rewarding. We will continue to host events, support each other’s personal and career goals, as well as constantly keep an eye out for diversity opportunities and improvements.
Interested in joining our growing team? We have a wide range of openings here at NerdWallet.
