Kindred supports Women In Tech Sweden for the fourth year running

Wed, 15 Jan, 2020

We are extremely proud to support Women In Tech Sweden for the fourth year running as a co-creating partner. The theme of #WITsthlm2020 is ‘Beyond Barriers’ and the event takes place on 6 March 2020. More than 2,500 will be able to take part in continuing to create a strong community for women in the technology industry.

#WITsthlm2020 is the Nordic region’s largest event for women in the technology industry. It is driven by companies and individuals who want to create change. Diversity is a big part of our sustainability commitment and is instilled in our values, so we are incredibly proud to be a co-creating partner. Every year, more and more people want to take part in the conference. So, to accommodate this significant growth, this year the conference moves to Stockholm Waterfront.

Little by little, women conquer obstacles every day. Women conduct sustainability research, photograph black holes, develop social robots that comfort lonely people and sustainable winter jackets filled with flower petals instead of down. Women program DNA, develop ethical guidelines for advanced AI, put pressure on the big tech companies to take greater responsibility, and much more. Women also overcome obstacles that want to stop their progress: glass roofs, discriminatory decisions, exclusionary cultures and ruling techniques. All this and more, Women In Tech is about. Here, all women who break new ground gather and want to make our planet a better and more sustainable place to live.

Kindred will be hosting a Women in Tech Meet-up in our Stockholm office, the theme for which will be ‘Trust’.

​The programme for this year’s #WITsthlm2020 conference will be released on 30 January at noon. As in previous years, the tickets are completely free.
