ITALY - RIMINI / JUNE 4 - 5 - 6
The WMF is committed to promoting equity and inclusion in tech. For this reason, every year we shine a spotlight on inspiring stories that stress out the importance of diversity in the workplace. During the past edition, we had the privilege of hosting three successful female speakers on our main stage: system operations engineer Chiara Cocchiara, computer scientist Melanie Rieback and young Luisa Rizzo, champion of drone racing.
Women’s underrepresentation in technology and science constitutes a serious concern in our society. In 2018, the European Commission’s study ‘Women in the Digital Age’ revealed that the gap between men and women’s participation in the digital sector has grown. The number of men with ICT-related studies is four times higher than the number of women and the gap becomes even bigger when looking at the percentage of women who go on pursuing a career in ICT.
We aim to build a more inclusive tech industry and highlight women’s contribution to the development of technology. This is why we decided to launch a call for ‘Women in Tech’. Fill up the form below and share your experience in tech with us!
