Mediterranean Tech Women Network Conference

Date: 12/03/2021

Join us at the launch of the Mediterranean Tech Women Network, a community to connect women in tech for learning, exchanging talent, opportunities and support through the Mediterranean and beyond.

As technology is nowadays fully integrated in our societies and everyday lives, it is upon us to foster equal opportunities for women and girls to thrive. Building upon the Friedrich Naumann Foundation and Womenpreneur’s “Mediterranean Tech Women Week” (MTWW) organized in 2020, we seek to continue fostering empowerment and development by setting up a Mediterranean network of women in the technology sector.

The aim of this network is to connect female leaders across borders to create and multiply opportunities in the technology field for women, to provide role models for girls interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers. While many women- and tech-centered formats exist, there is to date no Mediterranean tech network for women. We aim to fill that gap.

We will start with the official launch of the network with a keynote speech from the partners:
• David Henneberger, Head of FNF Madrid office.
• Sana Afouaiz, CEO and Founder of Womenpreneur Initiative.

And welcoming remarks from Carme Artigas Brugal. Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence.

Followed by a panel discussion on “Equality and Equity in Tech: Where do Women Stand?”
This roundtable will focus on the innovative policies and solutions necessary to ensure women are given equal opportunities in the tech workforce. This high level conference aims to bring together high level speakers, such as Tech CEO women, and political representatives to talk about the importance of increasing the number of women participating in the tech sector.

Speakers:

Anna Dorangricchia, Programme Manager Social and Civil Affairs Division at the Union for the Mediterranean.
Laurence Jacobs, Business Relationship Officer at Agoria.
Rawan Odeh, Partnership Manager for Monday.com
Eva Díaz, CEO Shapping New Humans.
Moderator: Chiraz Bensemmane, Entrepreneur. Founder Pitch World Fast & Coach Tribe. Facilitator Hive Women Leadership Program.

The conference will be followed for two days by a wide range of private sessions including inspirational talks to get the network going. Subscribe to our channels to stay tuned!

The event will be held in English.
