Tech women speaking at events and conferences about tech and digital activities are still on the low side. In fact there are still conferences that have all male line ups and all male panels. DigiWomen are working on changing this ratio since 2013.
And we are delighted to be part of Swipe Summit on Thursday the 4th of February 2016. The 2016 Swipe Summit will navigate delegates through the various online channels and platforms, the latest thinking, products and technology in the digital arena.
DigiWomen will be moderating track F which is all about creating great content. We will also be exhibiting at the event and hope to get to meet as many of you as possible. So be sure to drop by our stand and have a chat.
DigiWomen are taking part in the Swipe Summit because we firmly believe you cannot be what you don’t see. And we find it encouraging that iQuest and the Sunday Business Post are serious about changing the ratio of speakers at their events. Big shout out to Darragh Doyle for supporting this drive to get more tech women speaking at the Swipe Summits.
Last year when the Swipe Summit first announced their line up for their May 2015 event there was no tech women speakers. DigiWomen ran a successful campaign to get more tech women speakers added to the agenda. For this Swipe Summit event there are 22 male speakers, 7 female speakers. With an even amount of moderators 3 males and 3 females.
It’s a work in progress and more needs to be done to help this type of conference be more diverse. Being inclusive is good for everyone, for society and for business. Hats off to Damien Mulley who is walking the talk when it comes to changing the ratio of women in tech.
