Hi there !  My name is Furkan Karayel,

My story is all about women-in-tech, diversity and female entrepreneurship.  I founded Diversein after spending more than 10 years in tech companies as a software engineer. 


Started my childhood dream job 2 weeks after my graduation from Athlone Institute of Technology. The life was good ! Then I realised that in tech industry, women were minority at work and in the leadership . Women with different background in the leadership didn't even exist at all ! This was my wakeup call... and I had to do something about it ! 


After long considerations, I found myself in another journey where I was in minority again and yet this time, with so many unknowns: Entrepreneurship.


My motto in life is 

"Discover, share and inspire!" 

In the last 2 years, I spoke at more than 60 conferences, workshops, events or podcasts about women in tech, women in leadership, female entrepreneurship issues as well as the power of diversity and inclusion at workplace. 


Feel free to connect with me on Linkedin, Twitter or find out more about me on


I look forward to meeting you!

Warm Regards,

Furkan Karayel
