This year's conference focuses around the concept of the people behind technology that is changing the narrative around women leaders in the workplace. Thought-leaders, disrupters, innovators, data-driven specialists, human-focused advocates and leading companies and organizations are converging for one day to share how anyone, from any function, from any industry can implement tech for good through a series of keynotes, panels, and workshops. Join us and learn why and how to shift the gender perspective for a more equitable future.
