Networking at Women in Tech East Coast

What can I expect on the day?

Stand still in the tech sector, and you'll get left behind. Our conference allows you to deep dive into current tech trends and develop your business strategy based on these innovations. Expect keynote speeches, workshops and technical classes on these topics:

Reframing Disruptive Leadership 

Thought leadership and business leadership are no longer two distinct entities. In order to be a disruptive leader you need to adopt a disruptive mindset. Create action plans for your biggest challenges and refine the key soft skills you need to maximise your career potential.

Whether you want to develop and improve communication across your teams, reconsider your work/life integration, or become a leading voice in the tech industry, staying on top of your non-technical skills is essential to success in the digital revolution.

The Digital Frontier

To become a leader at the helm of innovation, you need to start thinking about the future of technology. As we move into a new decade, it is becoming even more evident that industry divides are blurring; tech and society are irrevocably intertwined. Through practical sessions and workshops, we explore some of the most discussed tech, the challenges of making it work for us today, and how it will shape the next generation across all sectors.

The Evolution of Work

Learn how sweeping business strategy changes are being instigated by new technology and how these advancements can be used to set new industry standards, identify growth opportunities, and put our companies at the helm of digital innovation. In an era of vast change, the evolution of how we work goes hand-in-hand with the evolution of technology. Action the information on how you can use these new ways of working to build more inclusive teams, stay competitive, and align entire organisations to purposes that set them on the best path to success.

Starting Up and Scaling Up

The East Coast differs from any other tech hub. The close proximity to America's global centres for Finance, Real Estate, and Advertising mean that there are unique opportunities to solve challenges and improve not only the tech industry, but far beyond.

Hear from the East Coast’s most inspiring founders and gain the knowledge you need to succeed in this unique tech landscape. Delve into the key aspects of the start-up journey, such as finding funding, creating impactful pitches, staying reactive and transitioning into larger teams.

Inclusion and Diversity: Hacking to Grow

The conversation on diversity has made impressive strides in recent years, however we’re not there yet. We’ve centred on diversity but, to achieve true equality, what we really need is inclusion – meaningful change for everyone.

Whether your organisation is just starting a D&I program, or you’re hoping to take your initiatives to the next step, in these sessions you can pull together your set of tools through lessons and learnings from thought-leaders and organisations thayt have actioned significant changes, both big and small.
