The Ladies Who Tech Convention returns to Shanghai for a day of advocating for women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) on Saturday, August 29, with the theme “Tech Has No Gender”.
This year, 2020, has been unpredictable, but the one thing we can count on is our determination to persevere and to emerge stronger from this crisis. When it comes to closing the gender gap in STEM, the show must go on. Ladies Who Tech organizers have planned a full day of keynote speeches, fireside chats, panel discussions, and workshops. The highly popular Tech Corner and Job Recruitment Fair will also be back. This year’s convention will feature an ally panel and introduce a speed-mentoring and investors meet-up session.
The full-day event will end with a cocktail session where speakers and attendees will have time to network. All this will take place at Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai. This is not your average convention—expect an interactive and tech-filled day! Since 2018, the Ladies Who Tech Annual Convention has attracted participants who are eager to hear our speakers’ insights on the automotive industry, data science, fintech, retail tech, semiconductors, and current trends of STEM industries.
The convention brings together leaders, start-up founders, role models, and experts to share their journey and to take a more in-depth look at what it means to be a woman in STEM and to continue the conversation on gender diversity in their fields. Workshops will give participants the opportunity to develop a mini-program, create a video game, and learn Python for data science. Corporations and start-ups will showcase their latest STEM products and promote their job vacancies. Ladies Who Tech Convention is supported by partners such as eBay, SAP, Bosch, EF, and IKEA China.
Ladies Who Tech is dedicated to promoting and achieving gender diversity within STEM industries. The Convention welcomes women and allies of all genders to join forces and work together to raise awareness of women in STEM.
