“Women leaders are the most untapped
competitive edge for the future global world.”

- Australian Computer Society



This multi-city forum will be interactive and action oriented, putting the design of the future in the hands of women across Australia and Silicon Valley to co-create best practices together. Every participant will contribute ideas from their experience to create a collaborative best practices for changing the dialogue and practice of women working in tech today and how to support and enhance Diversity and Inclusion strategies. In addition, build the strategy for a strong pipeline of women entering the technology industries.

"Today, around the world,
some 250 million fewer women than men are online."
- UN Commission

"Interestingly, technology is the only STEM discipline
where the participation of women has declined in the past 20 years."
- Tech Leader Judith Spitz



Our women leaders work on both sides of the ocean. From Australia to Silicon Valley and beyond, we are connecting the dots in the technology fields.
