What’s on the agenda?


The Festival content will cover a number of topics identified in our 2022 research, “What is Holding Back Women in Tech?” It will also focus on the areas highlighted by participants of our Level Up summit in 2022.

  • Explore the rapidly evolving landscape of technology and discuss where our existing tech skills will fit in the future.
  • Explore the fear of failure and the fear of success as we progress into more senior leadership positions.
  • Learn the art of negotiation to ensure we are getting the best deal for ourselves in terms of additional responsibilities, pay and promotion.

In the afternoon, delegates can shape their learning by choosing from over 16 different elective sessions, career stories and panels. Each session offers our attendees the opportunity to dive deeper into their specific areas of interest. These sessions will be led by experts in their fields and focus on tracks such as health and wellbeing, visibility and impact, networking and connections and leadership.
