The third Ladies Who Tech Convention returned to Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai on Saturday, August 29 for a day of celebrating and giving the spotlight to women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Women and allies of all genders attended the convention to raise awareness of women in STEM and to learn from, share with, and support each other.
This is not your average convention; it was an interactive, motivating and fun-filled day complete with dancing and community building. With the theme “Tech Has No Gender,” the convention was a full day event with keynote speeches, fireside chats, panel discussions, and workshops accompanied by a tech & job fair. This year, two new sessions, speed-mentoring and investors meet-up, were added to the agenda. The day ended with a cocktail networking reception.
Despite the stormy weather, the conference hall was packed throughout the day. The morning kicked off with a panel discussion highlighting the importance of allies advocating for gender diversity. Following that, corporate tech leaders and start-up founders shared their STEM journey and insights on edtech, data science, AI, automated driving, new retail, technology making a social impact, and the science behind protecting the environment. The evening wrapped up with a corporate panel discussion about hiring and retaining talent through inclusivity.
Outside the conference hall, inclusive corporate and start-up employers showcased their latest products and promoted their job vacancies. On a different floor, workshops gave participants the opportunity to develop a mini-program, create a video game, and learn Python for data science. Participants also met with mentors for career development advice, and women-led start-ups had the opportunity to pitch their business plan to a panel of women investors.
The Ladies Who Tech Convention was supported by partners including eBay, SAP, ANZ, Bosch, Budweiser APAC, Dentsu Aegis Network, EF, Herbaland, Huo Quan Quan, IKEA China, Johnson & Johnson, Philips, Senreve, and the Consulates of Australia, Canada, and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Ladies Who Tech is dedicated to promoting and achieving gender diversity within STEM industries. We should identify an engineer as an engineer, not a female engineer; not a female scientist, or female mathematician, but a scientist and a mathematician. After all, tech has no gender.
