Our programs


We offer the largest Women in Quantum community globally with more than 9,000 members in over 40+ countries.

There is a virtual community for paying members, as well as events & networking throughout the year both online and in-person.


Together with Keysight Technologies we offer a professionally run mentoring program to our members.

Here our dedicated mentors help you with basic business skills, soft skills and quantum tech 101.

Cohorts typically run for 3 months and it is up to the mentee to lead the relationship with their mentor.

Details on the mentoring page.


One of our main goals is to help women in quantum to be successful professionally.

We offer a resume database to employers, a job posting board and career fairs at some of the largest quantum tech conferences globally.

Women in Quantum Awards

At Q2B 2021 we awarded the first ever Women in Quantum Awards. Our goal is to recognize outstanding achievements in the fields of science, entrepreneurship, community and quantum building.

Details on our first cohort can be found here.


We offer need based scholarships to help deserving women in quantum to attend conferences, school or other important events that will help further their growth.

Our first scholarship went to Joanna Lis from JILA at the University of Colorado. Please read about her experience here.
