Version 1.1

Workshop: Women in Tech Initiatives Meetup

Bringing together diverse people and initiatives who foster diversity in tech.

Event large

In this session diverse groups and initiatives who foster diversity in tech have the opportunity to present themselves in a round of lightning talks. Afterwards we will connect and network in a facilitated exchange of ideas and discussions.

Technologists create products and services and in doing so affect our everyday lives now and in the future. If these products and services are supposed to serve our society as a whole, we need a lot of diverse and creative perspectives reflecting the richness of our communities. Therefore, we strongly believe that striving to increase diversity among technologists should be a major goal.

On our pursuit for diversity, one of the most encouraging things we can do is to highlight those women who already work on great things within their respective industries, provide them platforms to share their knowledge and inspire by their example.

In Vienna, a range of initiatives promoting gender diversity in STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) exist. To increase visibility as well as to facilitate exchange of ideas and getting-to-know-each-other amongst these initiatives, a session solely dedicated to these groups and projects will take place Friday afternoon.

As attendee you have the chance to easily get in touch with different groups and meet fellow like-minded technologists.

As representative of an initiative you have the chance to present your program and invite attendees to your events.

People of all genders are welcome to attend our event.

For more details and groups already enlisted, see the Women in Tech page at the PyDays 2019 website.
