The CEPIS DiversIT Charter initiative is continuing its series of annual conferences. This year’s event will take place on 29 November 2022 from 10:00 to 13:00 CET online. This year they are gathering together to answer the question “Can we work together?” How can a multi-stakeholder approach help increase gender equality in tech?.
They will kick off with a keynote speech from Helena Dalli, the European Commissioner for Equality, followed by talks and discussions by speakers from companies such as Accenture Slovakia and PeopleCert, non-profit organisations and professional associations.
There are countless excellent initiatives, organisations and projects to promote gender equality in STEM, to attract girls and women to IT studies or careers, to up- and reskill women, and many more. However, there is still relatively little progress in terms of actual percentage increase of women employed in the tech sector. All the while, the tech talent gap remains one of the main obstacles in the path towards smooth digital transformation.
The purpose of this year’s event is to create a cross-sectoral dialogue and to provide our attendees with inspirational examples of success stories from collaboration between different stakeholders.
