From Resistance to Resilience

Hosted by:

Women in Tech Republic

On International Women’s Day, W.I.T. Republic will use its platform to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness about women’s equality in the world of tech.

 

Not only will we be joined by 4 leading women with a wealth of experience in tech, as well as the diversity & inclusion space... but we also want this to be an interactive event where you'll be encouraged to share your own experiences and thoughts.

 

Joining us for the evening to get the conversation started:

 

 

Following the panel discussion, we'll split into breakout rooms for a deeper delve into diversity and equality in tech.

  • Room 1 discussion: Experiences around inequality in your career?

  • Room 2 discussion: How can we forge more diversity in tech?

 

We'll reconvene as a group at the end of the evening to discuss the key takeaways from each of the breakout room sessions and for some final positive thoughts on the future of women in tech!
