We're celebrating women in tech at this London conference
We're excited to celebrate and support women in the technology industry as attendees and sponsors of the 2019 Women of Silicon Roundabout conference.
We're joining more than 6,000 tech leaders and professionals for two days of inspirational keynotes and panel discussions from Tuesday 25 June. We're looking forward to hands-on workshops and valuable networking opportunities.
Baroness Karren Brady CBE, The Apprentice star and vice-chairman of West Ham United, will kick-off the event, setting the scene for 300 speakers and more than 150 sessions over the two days. Company representatives from Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Google and other world leading brands will be in attendance.
“Digital transformation is crucial for business success,” said a spokesperson for the event. “But how can you move from talking about innovation to putting it into action?
“The tech industry is notorious for fast-paced change – so stay ahead of the curve, be inspired, learn and supercharge your career at Women of Silicon Roundabout.
“[It’s an] opportunity to meet key figures, spot new tech industry trends and understand the challenges the sector is facing while discovering the solutions, join your community and master today’s tech possibilities to best position yourself for the future.”
How we're getting involved
We're proud to be a Bronze Sponsor of this year’s event. Allanah, Ellen, Danielle and Alex will be representing Team Everest both as attendees, and on our stand. We'll be exhibiting alongside fellow Cornish businesses to promote tech careers within Cornwall and the South West.
In preparation, we’ve been exploring what women in tech consider to be the most important factors behind job satisfaction. Now we want our visitors to get involved and choose their top three, contributing to our Women in Tech research report.
Our team can’t wait to explore the venue, get amongst the action and hear some fascinating talks. We'll be sharing updates on social media throughout the event.
Why we support women in tech
Supporting equality is a vital part of our core values. Our MD, Samuele Armondi recently shared his thoughts on the role of women in the tech industry
For our team, the Women in Tech conference is one of the most exciting dates in the calendar. Our Head of Service Delivery, Ellen, attended last year and is excited to bring more of the team with her this year.
Joining Team Everest in 2018, Ellen has more than a decade of high-level experience in strategy, tech and digital communications. Previous clients include; No.10 Downing Street, NATO, The Royal Navy and RAF and British Airways. Her appointment equally weighted our senior management team in terms of gender. “This brings balance and drive that is exciting to be part of,” says Ellen.
“The conference is a platform for improving skills and advancing tech innovation, through workshops, networking and peer-to-peer collaboration.
“We hear from pivotal women in global leadership positions who share their experience in business and their careers, which is inspiring.
“It really is a fantastic opportunity, offering discussion, advice and debate about leadership, careers and the digital world. Women in Tech is now a must in our diaries every year.”
How can you get involved?
We're passionate about supporting women in Cornwall’s thriving tech community.
“There are fantastic opportunities here in Cornwall,” adds Ellen. “We need to ensure that young and talented people, particularly women, have access to these opportunities. They shouldn’t automatically seek a career in the tech industry outside the South West. There are world class opportunities here.”
Our research findings from the event will contribute to our upcoming Women in Tech report that investigates what factors women value most from a career in tech. This will inform tech companies in what they need to do to attract and retain more top female talent in the industry.
