Still not convinced? Here’s a note from our producer, Emma Tommony:

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!

By joining us in Amsterdam, you’ll be at the forefront of the global community shaping the future for a more gender-diverse workforce. And you’ll be empowered with the skills, knowledge and connections needed to break the mould and reach your goals. 

The technology of tomorrow will require us ALL to play a role in its advancement. A non-diverse workforce is simply not going to cut it any longer. The advance of technology is creating new jobs, and we therefore need ‘new’ people to fill these roles – namely those looking to actively shape the future. 

The time for hiding in the shadow of legacy stereotypes and technologies is over join this pioneering new event, and bring your best self to our trailblazing community striving for real change!
