The partnership began with the development of the visual identity of the “Code Diversity Program”, a project through which GWiT aims to inspire and facilitate young people’s access to professions in the tech sector.
“We proposed the visual solution of the logo to be as relevant as possible for the target. Thus, the identity is made out of a code system that supports women’s presence in tech sectors. “CODE” is expressed by the binary code, while the code sequence from the matrix, in translation, means “DIVERSITY”. The binary code is made out of feminine symbols (O) and masculine symbols (|), and the equal number of characters supports the idea of diversity. The statement “Decode your tech career” invites the young women interested in tech to decode the visual message and the program components,” said Laura Iane, Creative Director pastel.
Dana Nae Popa, Managing Director pastel, added: “It is a great joy to be close to an organization with such an ambitious mission. The projects and the open manner in which the GWiT team approached the communication area have convinced us that we can team up. We believe in diversity and equal opportunities, and collaborating with GWiT is yet another opportunity to engage in projects with meaning both for us, and the association and especially for women who will benefit from the GWiT programs”.
The strategic partnership aims to develop the communication strategy for GWiT through PR and creative services.
“We found in pastel’s team a trusted, creative, professional communication partner, who was willing to invest in supporting our mission and who really understands the tech industry. We appreciate this collaboration and we have the certainty that we will be able to find and create the best solutions to lead the message of our projects where they will make a difference,” said Simona Sandru, President & Founder, Global Women in Tech.
