The 10,000 Women in Tech APAC Virtual Conference will be staged from the 13 to 17 November to support and develop successful careers for women working, or aiming to work, across the technology industry.
The event will be held completely online with four hour sessions each day to discuss topics such as reducing stress and managing life, taking risk and having a plan, communicating to be heard and building a personal brand.
emberin says the conference will bring together some of the world’s most influential speakers from companies such as Google, Dell, Uber, NAB, Facebook, Huawei and many more, to inspire and transform.
Maureen Frank,chief disruption officer at emberin, said, “If we want to make an impact on improving diversity in the technology industry then we need to bring a wide variety of leaders and influences together to talk about and share ways in which others can find success in their life and career.”
“The conference will be a wonderful opportunity for women and men to look at how we can move forward together as an industry by supporting and lifting each other up,” Frank said.
Kelly Ferguson, chief information officer at Origin Energy, will be one of the speakers presenting during the virtual conference.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to speak alongside so many women and men within the technology industry and leading companies from around the world, to share stories of success, challenges and practical advice for getting ahead in the world of technology, as well as any industry,” Ferguson said.
“Supporting women who are working in technology, or are aspiring to work in the technology industry, is a role we should all be putting our hand up to be a part of. By having speakers and attendees from various backgrounds and industries there will be an exciting range of ideas and talent.”
Another conference speaker, Walter Jennings, vice-president of Corporate Communications at Huawei, said, “It’s not only women who can make a change to increase representation of females in the technology industry, it also needs men to champion this change. I’m looking forward to being part of that discussion, and supporting women and anyone who wants to further their career in technology or any industry.”
Registration for the virtual conference costs US$50, and it is accessible to workplaces, individuals, students and leaders around the world. It will also be available on-demand as a box set post-conference.
