Buddy Press Connects Tech Women
The team at IIE.org came to We Are Immediate with a unique challenge: they wanted to build a private portal that allowed the Fellows of the Tech Women program to communicate with each other and with Mentors from around the world. The current Print and Spread Sheet method was no longer scalable as the attendance to this amazing program has climbed to over 700..
We needed to take Buddy Press and completely customize it based on the needs for the IIE. In order to best serve the Tech Women organization, made sure that all members could easily find each other from customized filters and robust search functions.
We developed a robust profile and communication portal using Buddy-Press, WordPress’s open source solution that allows members to create profiles, groups, add “friends” and message each other, helping 100’s of women around the world create breath throughs in technology.
