Third Edition of Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit is Coming in December!

0

While the COVID-19 epidemic has taken over the popular zeitgeist, it’s important to remember that there are still innumerable underlying societal issues that haven’t gone away, but in fact, might only be exasperated by the ongoing crisis. 

According to the European Commission’s Women in the Digital Age report, there are four times as many men in the information and computer technologies sector than women. Even more alarmingly, there is a decrease in women taking up similar fields in higher education, as well as a continuingly growing pay gap between the two genders. The overall financial losses from women leaving these industries are estimated at about 16.2 billion euros per year.

While there are countless organizations trying to promote diversity, real, persistent change is likely to come from within those industries themselves.

The Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit is one such event that aims to insulate and prop up the female voice in tech by providing workshops, seminars, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals within a rapidly growing, yet unfortunately slowly adapting industry.

Now in its 3rd year, a big step forward for the conference is that it’s going entirely online. On top of going global, students can participate for free, which is also a fantastic inclusion.
