Embassy Supports Nov 27-28 “Women in Tech Summit” on New Technologies in Warsaw

The U.S. Embassy is proud to support the “Women in Tech Summit” to be held at the Warsaw Expo on November 27-28.  Organized by the non-profit Perspektywy Foundation, the “Women in Tech Summit” will provide a platform for women professionals in the technology sector to share their experiences, learn about career possibilities, and inspire each other’s professional paths.  During the summit, women students, professionals, researchers, and top managers of global hi-tech companies will discuss the future of IT technology, its social impact, and women’s contributions to this vital economic sector. The summit will be the first event of its kind to combine the regions Central and Eastern Europe with Central Asia.  Speakers and participants are attending from Poland, other EU countries, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and other countries in Central Asia.  A career fair will also take place where top technology companies interested in expanding their organizations will recruit students and young professionals.  The organizers and sponsors of the summit – including the U.S. Embassy – are providing some travel funding to enable students and young engineers from the region to participate.  For more information on the Women in Tech Summit, or to attend, please visit the summit website: www.womenintechsummit.pl.
