Welcome to the IWD 2023 conference!


The beauty of “Dare To Be” is that it is part of a larger sentence: you can dare to be bold, to be innovative, to be resilient - it can apply to so many aspects of our lives. And to approach the theme from this perspective - to allow anyone to imagine what they dare to be - we recognize that each of us has something unique to offer. Everyone brings a different set of skills and strengths to the table. And when we as a community are able to harness the diversity of all those skills and courageous actions, we are able to continue our goal to build a world where all women can thrive in tech.

Sat 4th March 2023
9 am to 5 pm

Sir Charles Wilson Building,

full day of talks and workshops



Learn about web technologies, AI/ML, Cloud, IoT, UX/Design, soft skills and more!

We are thrilled to have a diverse group of brilliant women speakers who will be sharing their insights and expertise at the conference, coming from a variety of backgrounds and having different levels of experience in the tech industry.
