Women in Localization is a global community for the advancement of women and their allies in the localization industry. Founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008, Women in Localization now has 4,500 members and 16 chapters across the globe, and the organisation will mark its journey and their 10th anniversary through a series of events.
The aim of Women in Localization is to foster a global community that inspires professional equality in the localization industry and supports women through all phases of their careers. Members are provided with opportunities for networking, education, career advancement, mentoring and recognition for their accomplishments through its global chapters.
Now in their 10th year, Women in Localization want to celebrate their successes worldwide, and the UK chapter are hosting a picnic in Hyde Park on 2nd September, open to all localization enthusiasts – men and women – as well as their partners, children and dogs.
Inger Larsen, UK Chapter Manager said:
“We will have a treasure hunt by the Serpentine lake, exploring the beautiful park’s many pearls, and we are asking participants to wear an item that represents their favourite culture or country, hopefully providing some fun surprises! We are very pleased that Capita TI will be sponsoring the event with prizes.”
Antonio Tejada, MD at Capita TI said:
“At Capita TI, we are passionate about localization and have a great team of female leaders within our business furthering their careers through Women in Localization’s networking and collaborative learning.”
