Welcome to Women in Voice Germany!

We are the German chapter of Women in Voice (WiV), a global community dedicated to connecting women and diverse people who work in or are pivoting to the field of voice technology.

The idea of our global community is to empower each other by sharing information, sources and inspiration, and to help each other through a strong professional network.

As the German chapter (WiV DE), our mission is to foster this incredible community on a national and local level. Through our social media channels and a variety of (online) meetups and events, we want to create a space for all of us to grow professionally, and make a difference in the German voice industry.

What is Women in Voice?

Women in Voice is an international movement to empower women in voice technology.

Our mission is to build community for women and diverse people in voice technology, to amplify and celebrate the work and talent of women, and to provide professional development and resources to support women. We empower women in all the different roles that comprise the voice field, such as VUX/VUI designers, marketers, linguists, developers, engineers, AI specialists, etc.

Women in Voice Germany

Growing a national network of voice professionals.

We kicked off in October 2019, with an announcement at “All About Voice” Conference. Initiated in Berlin, we are growing constantly, with 100+ supporters and sub-communities in Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Frankfurt, and Munich. As we want to foster close ties across Germany, we are all operating under one central roof, ‘Women in Voice Germany’.
