Disrupt. Empower. Change: European Women in Tech, A Note from the Producer

EWiT Note from the Producer

The digital revolution has changed the business landscape - It’s truly one of disrupt or be disrupted! Take advantage or fail! 

Going digital is not just a technological shift however, it is an organisational change too, at the intersection of technology, business, and people. 

As we continue to move further into the modern digital revolution, tech’s potential to change the world through a more diverse and inclusive workforce is limitless... and with the prospect of new technologies still undiscovered ahead, it’s a genuinely exciting time to be in – or get into – tech!

However, we need to start realising that the technology of tomorrow will require us ALL to play a role in its advancement! The advance of technology is creating new jobs and we, therefore, need ‘new’ people to fill these roles, those looking to actively shape the future!

It is this drive to digital that every company faces – tech and non-tech  that is at the heart of European Women in TechnologyWe are founded upon 3 core pillars aimed at tackling the intersection of technology, business, and people, celebrating the successes, and inspiring those in tech to create change across all elements of diversity and inclusion (not just gender) and drive the tech economy forward:

  1. To be at the forefront of new technology trends, demonstrating their real-world applications, and potential impact for positive change
  2. To change mindsets and drive action and change around all issues in diversity and inclusion making sure the tech workforce can match the pace of technological advancement
  3. Ensuring that the tech sector has the people, skills, and opportunities they need to succeed, driving forward the tech economy of the future

We’re proud to have created a community focused towards empowerment, action, and change. One where we pull each other up, than try and stop people succeeding. We champion women in tech, celebrate business advances, and give a voice to inspiration through shared success stories of triumph and change in the face of adversity!
