    Women of The Future: Is Tech on Their Radar?

    Last week, Techie Space in Krakow was filled with enthusiasm and empowerment as we hosted a special event about Women in Tech. The event brought together a diverse group of individuals passionate about advancing gender diversity and inclusivity in the tech industry.

    The message for the event was simple. How do we ensure that the next generation of women have tech on their radar?

    Encouraging women to pursue careers in tech isn’t just about achieving gender equality; it’s about unlocking the full potential of society and driving the industry forward. Here’s a recap of the highlights and insights shared during this memorable gathering.

    The event kicked off with a keynote address by the Head of Technology, Adrian Duffy who introduced the topic of women in the technology industry and shared some statistics of the current situation. He spoke about typical stereotypes placed on women and how this does not just occur within the tech industry.

    Our first keynote speaker Marta Le, Software Engineer presented some interesting research, presented an AI experiment and tips and tricks on getting into the technology industry. Her blend of technical skills, advocacy, and personal experiences within tech mentoring programmes inspired our audiences to embrace diversity and encourage valuable discussion.

    The attendees were then graced by our next keynote presentation by Oleksandra Biskolouva. Her passion, curiosity, and a 16-year track record as an IT expert and technical leader provided our attendees and team with knowledge and inspiration. Oleksandra presented her view on the industry with an interesting like to technologies. To succeed and rise in the dynamic tech industry, women must continuously upskill and reskill themselves with new competencies and stay updated with the latest trends and technologies. Oleksandra provided advice, information, and her own personal experiences.

    We finished the event off with a special presentation from Karolina Woloszyn from IT Girls Foundation. Karolina discussed the foundation and their goals and initiatives to helping and encouraging women into STEM. We also had an exciting look at the METsy doll. A doll created to dispel the myths and stereotypes that pollute young girls minds. You can see more about it here.

    One of the highlights of the event was the chance to connect with like-minded individuals and expand professional networks. Attendees exchanged ideas, shared experiences, and forged valuable connections that will undoubtedly continue to support them in their professional journeys.

    As the event ended, organisers delivered closing remarks reaffirming the importance of diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. Attendees were encouraged to carry forward the momentum from the event and take tangible actions to promote gender equality in their workplaces and communities.

    Overall, the Women in Tech event at Techie Space in Krakow was a resounding success, leaving attendees feeling inspired, empowered, and motivated to drive positive change in the tech industry. As we reflect on the event’s impact, we’re reminded of the importance of creating spaces where women can thrive, succeed, and shatter glass ceilings. We look forward to continuing the conversation and working towards a more inclusive and equitable future for all in tech.

    We will see you in Krakow very soon!
