European Women in Tech 2019
November 26 - November 27
The digital revolution has changed the European business landscape – but will you disrupt, or be disrupted?
It was reported in early 2019 that only eight percent of businesses in the EU are classified as ‘leading innovators’ in the European Investment Bank’s latest investment report. In the US this figure is twice as high, highlighting that the technology of tomorrow will require more than just a technological shift to keep up with the global pace of change.
As the European technology landscape continues to evolve further within the modern-day digital revolution, tech’s potential to change the world through a more diverse and inclusive workforce is limitless – and with the prospect of new technologies still to be discovered ahead, it’s both an exciting time to be in, or get into, the tech industry.
Today’s technological advances are creating new jobs for the future and filling the skills gap is therefore imperative. Cybersecurity (48%), artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics (48%) were identified as the scarcest skills across Europe according to Building a Better Working Europe, a new survey released as part of the EY Attractiveness Survey series.
It is this drive to digital that every company faces – both tech and non-tech – that is at the heart of European Women in Technology. Founded upon three core pillars aimed at tackling the intersection of technology, business, and people, the event aims to celebrate the successes, and inspire those in tech to create change across all elements of diversity and inclusion, and drive the entire tech economy forwards.
European Women in Technology strives to:
- Be at the forefront of new technology trends, demonstrating their real-world applications, and potential impact for positive change
- Change mindsets and drive action and change around all issues in diversity and inclusion, making sure the tech workforce can match the pace of technological advancement
- Ensure that the tech sector has the people, skills, and opportunities they need to succeed
Classed as Europe’s Second City in Tech within the world’s most connected economy, European Women in Technology will be returning to Amsterdam 24-25 November 2019. Disrupt, drive and deliver at the world’s largest conference series for women in tech.
