is delighted to present the Women in IT Summit, UK. 

The UK’s technology industry is a booming one. According to Tech Nation, UK tech firms attracted more than £6bn of venture capital funding in 2017, more than any other country, and this continues to grow today. We can see that around 80% of tech investment in the UK is in fast-growing businesses, yet women are missing out on this entrepreneurial success, making up just 17% of IT specialists in the UK.

There has been some good news shared this year regarding the end of all-male boards in the FTSE 350 but there is still a long way to go and with the tech sector expanding at a rapid pace, it is imperative that it begins to mirror the people whom it serves. All people.

The 2021 UK edition of the Women in IT Summit will educate business leaders on how diversity in tech drives innovation and will share advise on greater cultural intelligence, better collaboration methods and inclusive actions.

Through a series of content streams, the agenda will share educational, insightful, and actionable recommendations.  Sessions will delve into the technologies that will be key for growth, security, and optimal performance; we will facilitate active discussion to

redefine policies, priorities and strategies; and this will be your platform for networking and collaboration within the tech community.

We invite delegates from around the world to join us on 23 June as we continue covering the most pressing tech issues and driving key diversity, equity and inclusion conversations forward. We look forward to seeing you there!

Following the summit, we will be hosting two fantastic events filled with further knowledge-sharing, learning and celebration.
