Women in IT Summit & Awards UK
June 23 - June 24
The 2021 UK edition of the Women in IT Summit will take place on June 23, aiming to educate business leaders on how diversity in tech drives innovation and to share advise on greater cultural intelligence, better collaboration methods and inclusive actions.
Through a series of content streams, the agenda will share educational, insightful, and actionable recommendations. Sessions will delve into the technologies that will be key for growth, security, and optimal performance. The event will facilitate active discussion to redefine policies, priorities and strategies, providing a platform for networking and collaboration within the tech community.
The UK’s technology industry is a booming one. According to Tech Nation, UK tech firms attracted more than £6bn of venture capital funding in 2017, more than any other country, and this continues to grow today. We can see that around 80% of tech investment in the UK is in fast-growing businesses, yet women are missing out on this entrepreneurial success, making up just 17% of IT specialists in the UK.
The Women in IT Summit & Awards initiative, presented by DiversityQ in association with Information Age, works alongside a community of industry champions to change these statistics and shift the narrative.
