Our vision is to have equal representation of women at global WordPress companies.
Who we are
WP Includes was founded by Siobhan McKeown and Francesca Marano. Disappointed by the lack of representation of women in leadership roles at companies in the WordPress ecosystem we’ve decided to do something about it.
We want to drastically increase representation of women in leadership roles at WordPress companies. We will do this by mentoring and supporting women to take the next step in their careers.
