Women in IT UK Summit 2023 launched

DiversityQ and Information Age will present the fourth annual Women in IT UK Summit on the 18th May 2023, to help organisations optimise their DEI strategies

The annual event, taking place at etc Venues, 133 Houndsditch in London, will explore how organisations within the tech industry, and beyond, can prioritise and put diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategies at the core of long-term business goals.

The summit provides the opportunity to network with like-minded business and tech professionals, as well as learn how to bolster DEI initiatives, innovation and staff recruitment and retention.

This year, the theme for the summit will be ‘impactful growth in an ever-changing world’, and will look to help tech and business leaders to bolster their talent pipelines and workforce management with DEI in mind.

In line with this theme, the 2023 Women in IT UK Summit in London will over three key topics:

DEI

Having a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace, from the top down, is key to ensuring that new ideas can be generated consistently, with businesses needing to innovate stronger and faster than ever before. In this respect, the event will discuss how we can cultivate a culture and strategies that are entrenched in DEI, as well as how to measure impact. The importance of diversity beyond gender, neurodiversity, intersectionality, allyship and racial inequality will also be explored during the summit.

Technology

As well as a DEI-centric team, organisations from all sectors are looking to get the best out of digital capabilities, to keep up with competition and improve user and customer experiences. However, if not rolled out and communicated correctly, there is a risk that employees may be left behind. This event will discuss how to responsibly innovate with trending tech such as AI, metaverse, quantum and green technology, while addressing concerns around privacy, cybersecurity, digital ethics and responsible technology.

Professional development

With job roles across business continuing to evolve, talent needs the right environment to continue developing their skills for long-term career development. At this event, you can learn about the importance of having policies and practices in place to ensure equal opportunity, as well as topics such as remote networking, productivity, leadership, team management and adaptability.
