As the technology industry remains a predominantly male industry, there is a slow but steady increase in the number of women working across science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Hence, from 13 to 17 November, Women and Men located in the Asia Pacific will have the opportunity to come together for one of the largest online professional development conferences, revolving around supporting and developing successful careers for women related to the technology industry!
Hosted by emberin, the 10,000 Women in Tech event will be held online completely, with 4-hour long sessions daily to discuss topics like reducing stress and managing life, taking risk and having a plan, communicating to be heard and building your personal brand.
Maureen Frank, Chief Disruption Officer at emberin stated, “If we want to make an impact on improving diversity in the technology industry then we need to bring a wide variety of leaders and influences together to talk about and share ways in which others can find success in their life and career. The conference will be a wonderful opportunity for women and men to look at how we can move forward together as an industry by supporting and lifting each other up.”.
Besides having different power-packed topics discussed during the conference, the online conference will bring together some of the world’s most influential speakers from companies such as Google, Dell, Uber, NAB, Facebook, Huawei and many more; that will definitely inspire and transform the participants involved. This year’s list of over 50 speakers includes Jane Livesey, Partner at PwC, Sarita Singh, Director SMB at South East Asia Facebook, Kanika Agarwal, Founder and CEO at Passion Peers and Sophie Guerin, Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Asia Pacific, Japan and China at Dell.
One of the many speakers during the event will be Kelly Ferguson, Chief Information Officer at Origin Energy. She said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity to speak alongside so many women and men within the technology industry and leading companies from around the world, to share stories of success, challenges and practical advice for getting ahead in the world of technology, as well as any industry,”
“Supporting women who are working in technology, or are aspiring to work in the technology industry, is a role we should all be putting our hand up to be a part of. By having speakers and attendees from various backgrounds and industries there will be an exciting range of ideas and talent,” Ms Ferguson continued.
Conference speaker Walter Jennings, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Huawei also said, “It’s not only women who can make a change to increase representation of females in the technology industry, it also needs men to champion this change. I’m looking forward to being part of that discussion, and supporting women and anyone who wants to further their career in technology or any industry.”.
