WeAreTechWomen, the technology arm of WeAreTheCity is hosting its fourth full day conference for female technologists on 22 November 2019 in central London.
This conference is aimed at women working in the tech sector who are looking to broaden their technology horizons, learn new skills and build their technology networks. The theme for this year’s conference is The Future World of Work and how innovation and disruption is driving change within the tech industry.
Our aim is to inspire attendees by delivering bitesize learning sessions for our audience. With the help of our amazing speakers and panellists, we will provide the opportunity for our delegates to learn about a broad range of technology topics as well as interact through panels, hands-on activities and workshops.
The conference will be attended by over 600+ women working in tech and is a ‘must-attend’ if you wish to drive your career, learn, network with your peers and be inspired.
Topics on our conference agenda include AI, cyber, data, ethics, innovation, digital, health tech, regulation, innovation, payments, cloud, transformation, tech mental health, learn to code in Python, robotics, plus more topics to be added.
Panels include innovation and AI, cyber, data and ethics, next generation disruptors as well as a panel with C-suite leaders who will be sharing their tips for career success.
There will be opportunities for delegates to network with other attendees and connect via Blendology’s state of the art tap and connect technology. Delegates will have the opportunity to shape their learning by choosing from 12 different electives sessions with leading experts and speakers. These electives cover all bases from technical, generalist, career and engineering.
The Future World of Work is kindly sponsored and supported by Amazon, BAE Systems, Barclays, EY, J.P. Morgan, Lloyds, PwC, Oliver Wyman, Santander Technology, and Worldpay.
We are proud to be joined by Caroline Criado Perez OBE, Writer, Broadcaster and award winning feminist campaigner, Author of Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men.
Caroline Criado Perez is a writer, broadcaster and award-winning feminist campaigner. She is published across the major national media, and appears in both print and broadcast as a commentator on a wide range of topics.
Her first book, Do it Like a Woman, was published by Portobello in 2015. It was described as “a must-read” by the Sunday Independent and “rousing and immensely readable” by Good Housekeeping who selected it as their “best non-fiction”. Eleanor Marx hailed it in the New Statesman as “an extended and immersive piece of investigative journalism,” while Bridget Christie chose it as one of her books of the year in the Guardian, declaring that “young girls and women everywhere should have a copy.” Her second book, INVISIBLE WOMEN: exposing data bias in a world designed for men, is published in March 2019 by Chatto in the UK & Abrams in the US.
Caroline lives in London with her small excitable dog, Poppy, has a degree in English language and literature from the University of Oxford, and studied behavioural and feminist economics at the LSE.
