Level Up Summit 2022

Over the past seven years, WeAreTechWomen’s Women in Tech conference and summit events have helped over 11,000 female technologists upskill and grow their networks.

We are now delighted to introduce our latest offering – the “Level Up” Women in Tech summit bringing together best practices for career progression. The summit will take place at the QEII Centre in Westminster, London on 06 December 2022 for over 400 in-person attendees, as well as through our live stream for thousands of participants.

Why Level Up?


Just 17 per cent of tech workers in the UK are female, with even fewer in senior leadership – and our recent research with Tech Talent Charter and Ipsos Mori showed that one in five women are thinking of leaving the tech industry! We need to think fast and act innovatively if we are to keep women engaged in the industry and to accelerate their rise to the top.  At WeAreTechWomen, we want to ensure that Women in Tech and the UK tech industry are successful today, tomorrow, and long into the future.

About Level Up


The “Level Up” summit will bring together awesome industry speakers, panels, and personal stories to provoke your thinking, answer your questions and share sustainable solutions to help change representation outcomes in the tech industry. Time will be built into every session for lively facilitated table discussions so you and your colleagues can build executable ideas to progress back at the office from what you’ve learned at the summit.

What we're covering


Summit content will deep dive into a number of the findings from our recent research, “What is Holding Back Women in Tech?” Mid-level women in tech, male allies and tech change makers will join us to highlight ways to:

– Hack the traditional pathways to progression
– Improve male allyship for women in tech
– Open up more access to role models and senior networks for sponsorship and career opportunities

Both in-person and streaming participants will also be able to pursue additional soft skills or industry knowledge training in two additional summit breakout spaces dedicated to Career and Tech Innovation, powered by EY.

Throughout informative keynotes, highly interactive panels with top leaders within the tech industry, engaging table discussion opportunities and breakout sessions, summit participants can refresh their own views and commitments to career progression as well as get equipped with more actions to help drive systemic change for Women in Tech.
