One day conference Reframe Women In Technology takes place on Monday 28th October in Manchester, set to reframe the narrative around women in tech through positive journeys and action.
If you're still on the fence about attending, here's 5 reasons why we really think you should!
Every one of our speakers applied to be part of reframe -WIT and were chosen to join us on the basis that they had a journey or experience to share and that they shared our vision of reframing the narrative around Women In Tech from a negative to a positive, you may not have heard of some of them before, some of them are brand new to speaking and in some cases brand new to technology too but they've all got a story to tell or a journey to share and that's what reframe - women in technology is all about.
Yes you read that right. Free childcare on site. There's already enough barriers for women in tech, having a child isn't one of them! So we'll have childcare provision on site for children up to 5 years old, you just need to let us know when you book your ticket and we'll reserve a space for your little one. If you'd rather not be parted with very small ones that's cool too just bring them along, we've even got space for breastfeeding/changing or if you need a quiet minute.
We know it's half term in some areas of Manchester on 28th October, but don't let that stop you! Big kids are welcome too, you'll need to buy them a ticket but at £29 it's cheaper than your average kids day out and they'll probably learn more too! There's also free wifi on site, an endless supply of beverages and snacks. Kids sorted!
Of course we'll cover some tech topics but Reframe WIT is also about dealing with the issues which affect women in technology so we'll have topics including leadership, career and confidence, diversity and inclusion, imposter syndrome, embracing differences, overcoming anxiety and much more.
Why so low? because we're committed to making our event as accessible as possible and that includes the ticket price. We know the average conference ticket price can be ten times this much, we know that's a huge barrier and that's not what we're about. The event is not for profit and we're transparent about our costs £29 includes the full day event with our 26 amazing speakers, free childcare facilities, refreshments and lunch and your reframe WIT goody bag too!
