    Europe’s Premier Women in IT Conference Kicks Off

    The Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit 2024, the largest IT and technology conference for women in Europe, is slated to take place on June 12 and 13. This landmark event will host several thousand participants, including leading minds in new technologies. Featuring a variety of inspiring lectures and hands-on workshops, it offers an unparalleled opportunity for professional development and career advancement.

    The sixth edition of the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit will be held at Warsaw’s International Exhibition and Congress Centre EXPO XXI. Anticipating up to 8,000 attendees, this is the largest conference of its kind in Europe. The event’s schedule is packed with lectures, workshops, mentoring sessions, and recruitment meetings, all centered on the theme of tech-life balance, emphasizing user-friendly technology.

    Innovative Demonstrations and Notable Speakers

    Participants will get the exclusive opportunity to see a quantum computer for the first time in Poland. However, the true attraction lies in the impressive lineup of special guests—top scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and experts from global leading firms.

    Spotlight on Leading Technologists

    Distinguished speakers include Professor Margot Gerritsen from Stanford, founder of the “Women in Data Science” movement, and Clara Nellist, a renowned science influencer and particle physicist at CERN. Also notable is Gitanjali Rao, America’s top young scientist and a global STEM education advocate. Additionally, Professor Christiane Floyd, Germany’s first female professor of computer science and a pioneer in open-source software, will be attending.

    Focus on Prominent Polish Experts

    The summit will also highlight some of Poland’s top IT and technology specialists. Among them, Ewa Kondera, Executive Director and Global ServiceNow Go To Market Leader at EY GDS, stands out. With over 25 years of professional experience, Kondera has been leading teams in global IT enterprises since 2000.

    “Global IT talent shortage is a pressing issue,” notes Kondera. “By 2030, over 85 million IT jobs may remain unfilled due to a lack of qualified professionals. Meanwhile, the percentage of women in IT remains low, even declining. Research shows that diverse teams perform better. At the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit, let’s discover how to unlock the full potential of women in technology to bridge this significant gap,” she adds.
