High Tech Campus brings tech women together in event 'Female Tech Heroes'
Feb 26, 2019 5:14:11 PM. By: Ingelou Stol
Female Tech Heroes is a new networking event dedicated to women working in technology. 'We want to inspire women in tech, but also women who are curious about technology', say Hilde de Vocht & Ingelou Stol, the organisers of Female Tech Heroes.
Female Tech Heroes will be a full day of inspiring keynotes by female leaders and workshops.'We want to bring women together to network, talk about their career and inspire each other. Our first event, Women in Tech, was sold out in no time. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm of the women who attended.'
At present, the percentage of women working in tech worldwide is still relatively low. 'We work in an environment heavily dominated by men, and we need more women.'
Diversity is the key to the development in all the spheres – and in technology as well. 'Research shows that diverse teams perform better. Individuals from different genders, races, backgrounds and experiences bring different perspectives that can lead to innovative solutions. Having key women in senior leadership roles will positively encourage other females to join an organisation that is supportive of advancing women’s careers, thus increasing overall company growth and productivity.'
