#WITswe23: Charged and ready to raise

We’re back again! ‘Charged and Ready to Raise’ is the theme for Women in Tech 2023 – The Nordics’ largest technology conference for women is hosted for the 10th year in a row at Stockholm Waterfront Digitalization, globalization, and electrification are in focus in a time where crises seem to be the new normal.

When the doors open to #WITswe2023 on March 23, it will be for the 10th time. The mission of Women in Tech is to bring more women into the tech industry and support those already here, and it’s as important and relevant today as when the organization started in 2014. To highlight opportunities and a great variety of people, roles and stories from the tech world and give people context is crucial. All this is offered to the participants during the conference each year.

“This year’s conference will highlight broad issues such as energy, cybersecurity, AI and leadership. With the help of our awesome partners, we will also offer a sharp range of focus areas where you can dive deep into different topics. Charged and Ready to Raise comes from charging the batteries and gathering strength to find new ways forward together. And what we know from previous years is that our conference provides a unique energy and experience to our participants,” says Elin Eriksson, Director of Women in Tech Sweden.

Great awareness but lack of action

Technology is the foundation for future opportunities and solutions. The teams and companies that create the services and products of the future need to ensure they reflect our society, and the industry still has a long way to go. Despite a great awareness of what needs to be achieved in terms of diversity, there is still a lack of action from an otherwise forward-looking industry.

“Should we really have to keep pushing the issue of gender equality in tech for more than ten years? The short answer is yes. Change takes time, and the issue with diversity in tech does not drive itself,” says Elin Eriksson, and continues. “Our 17,000 members and we are charged and ready to raise the bar. This applies to general development and everything from salaries, leadership, awareness, and assets to lifting our gaze together. This year we have more than 30 companies joining as partners. Companies that every day can and are ready to make a difference in their recruitment, leadership and with their business. It gives us good hope for the future.”

Tickets will be released early February

The tickets are free and will be released at the beginning of February. This year’s conference is held at the Waterfront Congress Center in Stockholm. Thanks to Women in Tech’s partners, the organization can offer members 2,500 tickets to this highly sought-after event free of charge. The interest in tickets is huge, and the conference is usually fully booked in just a matter of minutes.

#WITswe23 will host more than 25 speakers on the main stage and yet another +60 speakers in the focus sessions – supported by over 30 partners all coming together to work for increased diversity, equity and inclusion in our industry.
