Business. Culture. Fashion. Music. Marketing. Film.
Sports. Social Causes.

How are all these industries connected?

 

TECHNOLOGY!

What is it?

A unique event that will expose you to some of the most exciting careers of the future by bringing together inspiring female tech entrepreneurs and trailblazers who will share their very personal stories of what inspired them to pursue a career in tech, how they got to where they are today, the challenges they faced on the way and their WOW (Words of Wisdom)…all in 7 minutes!

And of course, in true WOW Talks fashion, there will be entertaining live performances intertwined throughout.

kp

Who is it for?

Girls and young women who want to create a life doing something they love and who are interested in finding out about the coolest careers of the future from women who are leading the way.

Why should I attend?

Any career you are interested in will inherently be tech-related. From sports (think Fitbit) to fashion (think Asos) to finance (think Apple Pay) to food (think Deliveroo) to music (think Spotify) to transport (think Uber) to dating (think Tinder) – if you think about it, everything we do is related to technology…and this will only increase over time.

Yet today, women hold only 26% of all tech jobs* We need to change this or we are in danger of women losing out on tomorrow’s most important and exciting job opportunities.
