Women in Tech Summit

Women in Tech Summit

The Women in Tech Summit is organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in collaboration with Women In Engineering (WIE).

Women in Tech summit is a one-day event meant to highlight women's involvement in technology and foster their role and impact. This targets female figures in academia, research, corporates, and government officials. By women in tech we don’t just mean CEOs and the genius leaders out there, but we mean every single woman who works in the tech sector regardless of her position.

The Summit brings together more than 300 STEM leaders from around the world and the MENA region, and focuses on the women's roles and impact on the AI & IoT World.

Under the theme of “Societal Impacts of Digital Disruption”, the summit is the place to connect with a diverse international community of women technologists, scientists and engineers. It is the platform for participants to be inspired, engage with peers, and build networks that will advance their careers.

The Summit facilitates skills development, advancement and engagement of women in technical fields, and provides an opportunity to create communities that fuel innovation and provide support through highly interactive sessions designed to foster discussion and collaboration.
