We are delighted that this year we will have 1000 data professionals at Women in Data UK. We have extended the event format, with speakers, development sessions and all-day exhibits to inspire the WiD UK community.
We thank our partners whose support enables us to make this landmark UK data event free for attendees. Each partner actively promotes the importance of gender diversity and we look forward to their contributions.
Central Hall, Westminster, is the largest events venue in central London. Central Hall offers a large yet speaker-friendly and audience-friendly auditorium, and rooms for our development sessions, training, day-long exhibits and dining.
The number of delegates at the Women in Data UK annual event has doubled year on year to 1000 in 2018. We have enjoyed dozens of speakers of the highest calibre and seen the WiD UK community grow to 20,000. 12 of our WiD UK colleagues and participants were recognised in the DataIQ 2018 Big 100. Our Chair, Payal Jain, was No1 Data Titan in 2016 and in 2018 is on the CW long-list for UK influential women in tech. In partnership with Edwina Dunn and The Female Lead, we look forward to announcing the next Twenty in Data and Technology to act as role models, following the success of last year’s inaugural Twenty. Our growth has led to leading brands joining us as partners, to advance data and diversity initiatives in their own organisations, and to encourage women in the data sector at every stage of their careers from graduate to boardroom.
WiD UK 2018 features some of the most influential women in the data sector, as speakers and on panels. There is a public sector panel and a panel hosted by our Platinum partner, Experian, on the critical matter of Data Trust. We also are pleased to have Liz Truss, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, opening the event.
Incredibly, the day’s workshop and training sessions were subscribed and full within 30 minutes of release. WiD UK 2018 will be a busy, varied and positive day … indeed, another a landmark event.
Why are ‘women’, ‘diversity’ and ‘motherhood’ still hot topics?
Laws ensure women are treated equally, so why do we need a women-only conference? Women in Data UK challenges the barriers that women still face in the technology sectors.
