What is GroWiT?

GroWiT (Growing Women in Technology) is a community that focuses in on the issues impacting the career development of female technology professionals today. Our sessions feature keynote speakers who have tackled interesting challenges on their way to achieving incredible outcomes. All of our events are designed to be very inclusive, open and informal. It’s your chance to ask questions of inspiring technology and business leaders so that we can all explore and unleash the potential of females within technology career tracks. We are committed to helping technology focused businesses drive their diversity and inclusion agendas, offering advice and practical guidance around how to deliver positive action. Because after all, diverse teams are more productive teams.

“I thought the speakers were great and really engaging. They addressed the concerns I had on how to drive the diversity agenda without vilifying the men in the work place and without just playing a numbers game.”
