Women of Docker
Docker is proud to have created a workforce that consists of many exceptional women. We’re committed to creating a diverse workforce and inclusive culture for all. Docker supports the career development and advancement of all of its female employees.
Docker Women’s ERG
The mission of the Docker Women’s ERG is to foster a safe space for the women at Docker and their allies while positively impacting Docker’s growth and development. The group is open to all Docker employees on a voluntary basis. Group members can enjoy the benefits of networking, career development, education, and guest speakers.
Diversity and Women in Tech
At Docker, we feel strongly about embracing diversity and are committed to being proactive with respect to inclusion. As an example of our support for diversity, during our DockerCon 2021, we hosted Community Rooms with panels and sessions for our global audience in their native languages. We highlighted the contributions from our women Captains and community developers.
“Docker has been flexible with working hours and childcare since my very first day I’ve never felt frowned upon or scrutinised for having to drop off a call early for a school pick-up or to take time off for childhood illness. The culture is open, considerate, respectful and values the voices of all employees, no matter their level or role.”
Rosie Garcia, Manager, Technical Program Management

“As a woman in tech. it’s important to me to feel heard and supported by the organization I’m a part of.
