As we celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th of March, at WILD we wanted to have an event where we can not only keep those celebrations going, but we can reflect on what’s been said and celebrated.
Our IWD: Future Voices event is to reflect and continue celebrating and finding opportunities to lift and empower women, especially across Leeds. We want to hear from the next generation of digital leaders in tech from across the city. We know there are people building their networks out there, and are keen to speak in public. Well this is your opportunity to get in front of a friendly and inclusive group of peers where you get the opportunity to speak in public, (maybe for the first time?) and practice your skills!
The International Women’s Day’s word of 2023 is equity, so our speakers are invited to speak for 10 minutes about what ‘Equity’ means to them. PLUS speakers chosen will also be offered a free online coaching session to help them prepare their talks.
We’re inviting attendees for networking and drinks and to come listen to our speakers during 6-7pm with networking opportunities from 5.30pm and after the event as well as inviting future voices to fill in an application form with their talk outline!
To attend the event please sign up for your free ticket on eventbrite
If you wish to speak at the event, please submit your talk application here
Please note – Submissions close 6th March 7pm
Food and drinks will be available and provided by our hosts Cognizant.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the event!!
