The first Women in IT Virtual Summit will ensure that the work that has been put in previously to promote diversity and inclusion within the workplace is not halted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over 25 speakers will attend this year’s event, taking place between 30th June and 2nd July, where they will discuss the diversity initiatives they have carried out, and how their organisations have:

  • Taken stock and assessed the impacts of Covid-19 on the tech industry.
  • Redesigned their workplaces, policies, and hiring practices.
  • Developed technological solutions in response to global challenges.
  • Continued to help their teams develop and find their voice during the shift from physical, to digital.
