In this age of rapid technological developments such as big data, cloud and innovative robotics, more right-brain thinking is needed in a world governed by left-brainers. Success is largely determined by creativity, intuition, adaptability and openness (ciao). It is a field with many career opportunities for women. Unfortunately, the share of women is still extremely low. RightBrains aims at growing the number of women who choose a study or career in digital technology.

Through the RightBrains platform inspiring stories are told and information is provided about digital strategy, transformation, leadership and innovation to make digital technology attractive for women. Besides image building, the platform also communicates about upcoming events, educational programmes and vacancies.
