Inspired by our debut event last year, as a partner of Singapore Tech & Innovation Week and Slush Singapore, Women In Tech Conference is now back – this year we bring you even more exciting discussions, dialogue and insightful debates.
Born from a ground up and volunteer movement inside South East Asia’s tech scene, we exist to facilitate a positive, energised and solution based annual gathering of the inclusivity and diversity movement in the tech industry across Asia.
Latest research suggests the attitudes of young women in APAC towards STEM are still based around the perception that the tech industry is not supporting women to succeed.
We aim to change that.
