Women in Tech Careers

Women in Tech? Female Technologist?

Hell yes.

Progress in tech with new career opportunities.

Join us (virtually) in October at the 3rd edition of Women in Business Expo.

The Tech landscape is changing.  We’ve seen it first-hand during the pandemic. Just this past year, remote working combined with unified communications and collaborations propelled the shift to our new reality enabling businesses to survive.

 Yet, gender diversity has remained stagnant in the last 10 years in tech.  At the senior level in the industry women hold only 16% of positions. And as you go higher into executive leadership and director roles, women hold just 10% of executive-level positions. (Entelo, 2018.)

It’s time women/women-identifying individuals are included in the conversation to drive further innovation in the industry forward. You deserve to be part of the conversation and to lead it! 

Why attend?

Progress within Tech

Speak to employers committed to DEI (Diversity, Equality, Inclusion) agendas within STEM, who are actively recruiting female talent. This is your chance to interview THEM.

Upskill and reskill

Engage in roundtable discussions with top tech companies to upskill your capabilities or reskill to leverage growing opportunities in the field. 

Be inspired 

Gain insights and knowledge at our Tech Talks from powerful women who have been in your position and are innovating and changing the tech landscape.

Excel in your career

Mindset or the patriarchy? Potentially a mix of both. Break through your limiting beliefs and the confidence gap with the tools to achieve your professional goals, with others striving to do the same.

About the event

The #1 virtual expo for women in tech, looking for recruitment, guidance, and upskilling to excel your career.

Women in Tech and Business Expo is focused on advancing female leadership, centering conversations on propelling diversity in the field, and creating new opportunities for those currently in tech, or breaking into it; across both technical and non-technical roles.

We partner and collaborate with companies, organisations, and leading professionals across the tech industry to create opportunities for diverse management teams and boardrooms.

A brilliant 2 days, so well organised a great line up. I thought I would miss seeing people in person, but actually I met lots of new people and was able to network. A great mix of speakers, exhibitors and attendees.

I wanted to attend Women in Business Expo as an opportunity to network with large employers. It worked tremendously well, and I now have a number of very large companies actively considering vacant roles for me.

Hannah

I am amazed with everything I learned these last 2 days. It opened my mind to other opportunities, and I received tonnes of helpful advice about what I need to do to go forward in my career. Thank you so much.
