Women Shift Digital Conference
body>data>space presents a conference to celebrate Women in Digital Careers
Level 39 / Canary Wharf / 26 November 2013 / London
Follow the debate at #womenshiftdigital
Women Shift Digital is a conference for women and men, designed to celebrate women in digital careers, network the networks and influence the influencers. It was a day to reflect collectively on the positive impacts women are making with digital-led careers as creatives, managers and executives in creative industries, education, business, design, skills development and the arts.
This special gathering featured inspiring keynote speakers and panelists, demonstrations and debates from leaders and movers in micro-enterprises to SMEs, institutions to companies.
We invited women and men, active talents in the digital sector to join us on the day, ready to input, share ideas, make new partners and move forward together.
This is the right point in time to recognise and celebrate the greater benefits gender balance is bringing to the digital and tech marketplace in terms of creativity, user design and economic added value.
Underusing the talent, skills, visions and knowledge offered by women is no longer an option – we need to work together, women and men, to design our future.
We are working on set of resources from the day including reports and videos, we will put them up in the coming weeks, in the meantime you can see:
