Women in Tech Festival Global | We're going virtual!

Monday 30 November - Tuesday 1 December

2020 has been a monumental year for change, transformation, and shining a light on diversity issues still prevalent in society. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we rally together to combat those issues that hinder women of all backgrounds within the technology industry.

This November, Computing and CRN will be hosting an online global festival with content that doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of being a woman within the tech industry. This year will focus on empowerment, development, management, and even the taboo of managing inappropriate workplace interactions.

For the second year running the Women in Tech Festival Global will provide two-days of carefully selected motivational keynotes, case studies, panel discussions and mentoring. Our industry leaders from around the world will cut through the smoke and mirrors to encourage women to step out of their comfort zone and make achieving the ‘next step’ a reality, not a dream. Alongside this will be our remote fringe events such as mindfulness, yoga, nutrition zone and more to be announced.

Whether you're the ‘Next Generation', an ‘Inspirational Leader', or an ‘Innovator of Tech' this event will offer inspiration of not only how to improve yourself, but how to help others too. With a keen focus on addressing diversity throughout the day, this event is for anyone within the industry.

Going virtual gives us a greater opportunity to not only expand reach, but also to take a deeper dive with more sessions, more speakers, and more discussion for women in tech! Click to find out more about the benefits of attending a virtual event.

Join us for this two-day virtual global festival to collaborate with peers on the new challenges presented by COVID-19, and to suss your strategy for 2021!

Our mission is to celebrate women at every stage of their technology journey. We're creating a network to enable women to share their experiences, advice, and raise awareness of challenges we are yet to overcome. It is too common for women to feel isolated within this industry, and we're building the foundations to provide women with a platform they can rely on.

Whether you're an apprentice, a manager, a woman, or a man - you have a part to play in helping us tackle the gender diversity deficit. Our goal is that one day soon, this campaign will no longer be necessary.
