Hacker News contributor Moulton Lafayette is announcing the launch of its new LinkedIn for Women app for women.
The app will have access to the same content as the men’s version, including stories, videos, quizzes and more.
In a blog post, Lafayette said that her app will be accessible to all women, and will be “designed with an emphasis on the needs of women”.
“The app is designed to make it easier for women to stay connected and engaged with other women,” she wrote.
Lafayette said she started the app with a goal of “providing a platform for women in a variety of industries, professions, and sectors to share and discuss”.
She hopes the app will eventually be integrated into other social networks, but said she didn’t want to be a “one-size-fits-all” solution.
“The goal is to have an app that is a perfect fit for all women,” Lafayette wrote.
“For example, if you are a social media manager, but you want to use the app to manage your social media accounts, the app is perfect for you.
If you are an editor or writer, but the app would be a good fit for you, the apps are great for you.”
Lifelong women like Moulson Lafayette are keen to see more women in tech.
“I think this is a really important opportunity for women and for our industry,” she said.
“This is an opportunity to have a place for women who want to network and collaborate in a safe space where they can talk about what they are working on and share their experience.”
