Being Human in Times of Disruption, Technology and Innovation.
Unite 100,000 Women in Tech to Drive Change with Purpose and Impact.
WomenTech, the global network, is hosting the largest virtual tech conference for women, minorities and their allies in science and engineering, WomenTech Global Conference 2020 on June 10th across all US and European time zones.
Bringing for the first time 100,000 women from the tech sector together with strong participation from the US and Europe and inviting representatives from around the world to join, work on and discuss what matters most in times of uncertainty, broaden their technology horizons, expand their professional network and meet companies currently hiring.
#WTGC 2020 will feature tech professionals, industry innovators, and more than 2500 WomenTech Network Ambassadors & 300 speakers from around the world. Some of the speakers are the most accomplished women in tech, including technologists, scientists and leaders at Amazon, Facebook, Founder Institute, Google, Harvard, IBM, Microsoft, Netflix, Stanford, Twitter and many more.
“Women are more vulnerable in times of disruption, be it through a crisis as COVID-19 or job automation, as evidenced by the UN, more women work in low-paying, insecure and informal jobs without health insurance, thus compromising women’s ability to make a living and meet their families’ basic needs”, says Anna Radulovski, Founder and CEO at WomenTech Network, Coding Girls and Tech Family Ventures, and further continues “This is why by uniting 100,000 women in tech we act as a catalyst, inspiring women to enter, grow and excel in technology to become part of a solution by leading with purpose, humanity and impact”.
The theme for this year’s conference is evolving around the Future of Work, COVID-19 Aftermath, Technology with Impact and how tech innovation and disruption are driving change in the world.
The premier conference will give access to top names in the industry holding inspiring keynotes, engaging panels, technical workshops, and face-to-face networking sessions to learn through actionable advice, helping attendees cope with the aftermath of COVID-19 and excel in their tech careers.
Various organizations supporting previous events are working towards a more diverse and inclusive tech industry together with WomenTech Network. This includes Airbnb, Apple, Avanade, Coca-Cola, DHL, Financial Times, Skyscanner, Soundcloud, The World Bank, Uber, Ubisoft, VMware, and many more.
