OVERCOMING CHALLENGES AS WOMEN IN TECH

MAJID AL FUTTAIM PANEL 

One of the region’s leading lifestyle conglomerates, Majid Al Futtaim, joins forces with Global DevSlam to expand on their innovation agenda – and discuss their landmark ‘5000 Women In Tech’ programme launched in September 2021.  

As part of this programme, Majid Al Futtaim will organize an event at this year’s edition of GITEX, the region’s foremost business and consumer technology event, under the Global DevSlam conference for developers and coders (10-13 October 2022). 

Join us as two senior women tech leaders from Majid Al Futtaim take the stage to share their career experiences and inspire the next generation of women in technology.

 

About the session:

The Middle East & North Africa technology industry is still booming and unlocking new opportunities for the region, and is on a trajectory outpacing many global leaders in terms of adoption and innovation.

But behind global success lies a persistent diversity problem, with gender playing an integral part. For the past four decades, the gender gap in the technology sector has only widened, with just one woman in five people working in the industry today.

It is now more critical than ever for us to identify and resolve essential challenges faced by women as they build and develop their careers in the technology sector.

Join us for an inspiring fireside chat with women leaders of the Middle East who have successfully created and scaled tech businesses and technological innovations in the MENA region. The theme of the session is: "Overcoming Challenges as Women in Tech.”

Aim – To inform, inspire and catalyze women dreamers who either intend to or are already building careers in technology across the MENA region.

The event will gather 50 likeminded individuals, practitioners, and thought leaders with a shared passion for all things Tech, as well as the movers and shakers driven by the common desire to disrupt the status quo.
