By popular demand from our women in technology colleagues in the Asia/Pacific (APAC) community! We are excited to bring a dedicated APAC focus to WITI’s 27th Annual Summit, with the theme of Stories of Growth. We plan to inspire ingenuity in our commentary by fostering dialog on:
- Equity, Inclusivity, and Belonging
- Digital Education and Entrepreneurship
- Disruptive and Emerging Technologies
- Sustainability and Social Impact
- Authentic Leadership
For WITI, inclusivity goes beyond gender, as we investigate the various intersections that play a hidden but crucial role in understanding the needs of the women of APAC – be it economic, structural, or physical differences that come into play. At WITI’s first-ever APAC track, we explore the potential for impact and creativity that could be brought to emerging technologies by ensuring inclusivity, belonging, and opportunities in digital education.
With personal narratives that inspire talent and an honest examination into how we can bring about sustainable impact, we will be catering to resources for women in tech in APAC throughout the Summit. By shining the spotlight onto the stories of those who thrived through challenges and emerged victorious, let’s find some common ground among the threads that unite us.
