We have been hosting our women in tech conference for over six years. In fact, we have welcomed over 5,000 diverse women through our doors since 2015. We are not a large media company, we are a passionate organisation that has been championing women in tech for the past 13 years. To us, it’s personal. 21% of women in the industry is just not enough, it needs to change. For this change to happen, it starts by showing existing women in the industry and those who want to transition in, what that world of future tech really looks like. It also involves encouraging women from all backgrounds to consider tech careers, so that we can build products and systems that are truly inclusive. Our conference will not solve these problems overnight, or even scratch the surface on the journey we need to go on for gender parity in the industry, however it will provide an opportunity for attending to learn about what is innovating and disrupting the industry globally. This will enable them to have a broader understanding of the tech landscape and to think about how they adapt their skill sets and grow their networks for the future.
This year, we are going to be bringing you the very best global virtual learning experience on a state-of-the-art conferencing platform. Our conference will provide ample opportunities to learn about emerging technologies and what is innovating and disrupting the industry. We are blessed to be given time from some of the world’s finest speakers who will be joining us to share their wisdom and knowledge. We will deliver innovative sessions on a variety of different areas of tech, with a side order of career development, fireside chats and ample networking opportunities, both on the day and through our global virtual networking world.
Each year, we work with our 24,000+ women in tech community at WeAreTechWomen to identify what tech innovations and topics they would like us to cover as part of our annual conference. We build our agenda around that feedback – giving our community what they want, to not just accelerate their careers, but to understand about the wider world of tech, and how this will affect the future world of work.
We hope you will join us for what will no doubt be one of the most exciting events for women in tech.
