OTW drop in session

Join us for our drop in session to help shape our One Tech World conference

WeAreTechWomen are hosting their 4th Global Women in Tech virtual conference, One Tech World on 25th April.

One Tech World aims to reach over 5,000 women this year working in the tech industry to share innovation in the industry, career development tips and to provide an environment where women can connect and build their tech networks globally.

As an organisation, we never build our events in an ivory tower, we prefer to speak directly to our community to ensure whatever we deliver hits the spot in terms of their career development.

As we look forward to a year of innovation, empowerment, and collaboration, your insights and ideas are invaluable in ensuring that the conference becomes a resounding success. The webinar will be a dynamic platform for brainstorming, exchanging ideas, and collectively creating an event that not only addresses the current challenges faced by women in the tech industry but also inspires positive change.

With this in mind, you are invited to join our founder Vanessa Vallely OBE on this open webinar to help shape this year’s incredible event. We are seeking ideas on topics we should cover, speakers you would like to hear from and areas of tech you would like to understand in more detail.

The webinar will be open for 90 minutes leaving you to just drop in when you can and share your ideas.


Your unique perspective and experiences will contribute immensely to the success of this event. Together, we can pave the way for a conference that not only celebrates the achievements of women in tech but also fosters an inclusive and supportive community.
