WeAreTechWomen, launched in 2015 is WeAreTheCity’s dedicated area for our community of female technologists. This dedicated microsite provides our WeAreTheCity technology members with access to news, tips and advice for women working in IT, in addition to profiles, features, guides and case studies on how technology is helping women to further their careers.
WeAreTechWomen was launched to showcase women in the industry and to raise awareness of the gender divide and skills shortage that are still affecting the tech sector. Opportunities for corporates to engage with this community include featuring their roles on WeAreTheCity Jobs, advertising opportunities or sponsorship of our annual tech conference/events/awards.
WeAreTechWomen hold a large annual conference every year. This conference is designed and built using feedback from a series of focus groups with WeAreTechWomen members. We also work with a number of corporate sponsors who provide funding for these events. Our tech conference is aimed at upskilling the female tech pipeline and is technical by nature. No stats, and no labouring about the lack of women in tech, we focus on skills for progression. We provide our attendees with the opportunity to learn about emerging technology trends, such as fintech, digital, big data, IoT, coding and other industry topics. Our attendees also hear from leading experts in their fields, contribute by way of discussion and choose sets of elective sessions that will add value to their career path. At WeAreTechWomen, helping others is at the heart of everything we do, and we donate a number of our tickets to individuals who are not currently in employment/students and to female tech returners.
We also offer the ability for corporates to partner with WeAreTechWomen for editorial campaigns, talent attraction events, or to promote their open roles via WeAreTheCityJobs. There are also opportunities available to host and sponsor our annual conference and our WeAreTechWomen awards, which are due to be launched in August 2017.
