WIT Europe – inclusion lessons for tech firms

Presented by DiversityQ, the free online event, sponsored by the likes of Amazon Web Services and Red Hat Software, will provide inclusion lessons for tech firms and will help attendees turn D&I conversations into meaningful actions such as boosting diverse leadership and supporting underrepresented tech leaders.

A key theme that will be explored in the event will be how to fuel organisational transformation, growth, and recovery via data and digitisation.

Attendees can expect a plethora of inspiring sessions with actionable takeaways, including the morning’s first panel discussion entitled “Diversity Conversations Across Europe: Progress from Country to Country,” featuring Dr. Cristina Aranda, Co-founder MujeresTech, an organisation that empowers girls to enter the technology sector, Kamini Aisola, Director, EMEA Segments & Acceleration Programs, Amazon Web Services, and Dániel Waliduda, Progam Coordinator, HIV Peer Service, Háttér Society, one of the oldest and largest LGBT+ NGOs in Hungary.

In this session, attendees can expect to learn about tailoring language and approaches to specific contexts and regions and the geographic hurdles when it comes to gender, race, disability representation, age, and LGBT+ representation.

There will also be a presentation entitled “Europe’s Venture Capital Hide & Seek – Find the Diverse Tech Founders,” by Gary Stewart, Founder & CEO at start-up and scale-up advice and networking organisation, FounderTribes.

Another standout session of the day will be an afternoon masterclass entitled “How to Maintain Inclusive Comms in Hybrid Working”, presented by Laura Smith, Founder of responsible research firm, VALIDEI Research. Topics to be explored by Smith will include the comparison between office working environments and working from home when it comes to having a voice, and whether internal organisational communications are truly inclusive or if digital is better.
