OUR QUEST TO SUPPORT WOMEN
On March 8th 2018, we had our very first Women’s Edition Get-Together. Gathering on International Women’s Day and seeing so much support for women in tech was a truly inspiring experience that we can’t wait to repeat.
This year, our LGBT+ Women Special Edition will take place at PROJECT A in Berlin! In the age where the leading companies in the world are tech, we still struggle to spot women in leading and C level positions. Join us on March 7th, as we discuss the motivations behind starting a business, health tech and being a leader in an industry that is predominantly male.
We plan to have more Women Edition events, but in the meantime, we are collaborating with women initiatives across the globe, to support and celebrate women in tech. If your company is interested in getting involved in our quest to support women, have a look at our partnership page.
