The biggest European event for women in technologies coming in November. Meet us there!
On 13-14 November over 3000 talented professional women, programmers, managers and tech and IT students will meet at EXPO XXI in Warsaw for the “Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit 2019". From the beginning the initiative has been supported by Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland. This year's edition received funding within the "DIALOG" programme.
Fascinating people from the tech world
This year’s special guest will be Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski, a physicist from Harvard, considered to be one of the most brilliant minds of the young generation – a modern Einstein. In total, 150 notable speakers from all over the world – including the leaders from the world’s most innovative tech companies and researchers from the world’s most ambitious centres: Stanford University, Harvard University, Oxford University.
The Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit includes over 80 workshops and presentations in two clusters: Tech and Career&Soft Skills. This way, everyone will find something for themselves. This year, on two parallel stages, there will be multiple presentations and debates on the most important aspects of the industry: technology development in the context of climate changes, datasafety, but also team management, diversity support or confronting facts and myths on career changes in IT. The main subject of the Summit is cybersecurity, but there will also be workshops and presentations on 5G, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Machine Learning, as well as the use of Big Data. Additionally, in the special Design Thinking zone, for both days of the Summit, the participants will be able to get to know this methodology and its practical applications!
Unique side events
Several pre-events organised by partner companies (Google, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, P&G, BCG, Santander, Ericsson, RBS, Amazon, Electrolux, Citi) and meetings for researchers and scientists, or women’s networks, are a solid dose of inspiration and knowledge, as well as a chance for gaining valuable contacts!
Poland as an IT hub
Over 2,500 people from 37 countries participated in last year’s Summit. It is worth noting that according to experts, Poland has all the assets needed to become a world power in digital defence, an exporter of cybersecurity solutions and a strategic NATO ally for cybernetic operations. Therefore there will be a special zone at the Summit, promoting the Polish know how and Polish scientists and engineers - the participants will have the opportunity to get to know the IT and tech companies successfully building their position in the international market.
Chance for career development
During the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit there will be opportunities to get to know over 50 organisations working in the IT and Tech area! The biggest global tech companies will answer the participants’ questions, there will also be recruiting opportunities on the spot. We suggest bringing your CV and cards along - for people just entering the job market the Summit is a chance to find the first job, for experts and experienced managers it is a chance for further career development and exchange of know-how!
The Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit is organised by the Perspektywy Education Foundation, supporting women in technologies for over 13 years. Many years’ efforts to build country-wide programs such as “Girls as Engineers”, IT for She and others brought recognition, including the European Digital Skills Award 2017 from the european Commission, in the category of promoting women’s digital skills. The Foundation’s projects had real impact on promotion of tech education and science among girls and women.
The program and tickets are available at the website.
