“Slovak Women in Tech” Conference: Celebrating Excellence and Empowerment in IT

The annual one-day, multi-genre Slovak Women in Tech conference is the first event dedicated to celebrating women in IT in Slovakia. Its goal is to inspire and empower Slovak women in the tech industry by providing a platform to showcase their work and encouraging them to pursue careers in IT. It will take place on 10 October 2024 in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The conference programme is specially designed for women already working in IT, as well as those considering it. It includes inspiring speeches, discussions, a presentation of the unique Women in IT survey, panel discussions, community meet-ups, and direct meetings and conversations between women and employers. 

This year’s conference theme is: WOMEN ON THE PATH OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – What can it bring and take away for women? How to prepare for co-existence with it? 

The conference will also feature a gala evening with the inaugural award ceremony for the “Žena v IT” (Woman in IT) Award.
