    • Product management

    They are small, informal support and networking meetings where women can discuss issues that relate to their digital career and that might help them reach their full potential. The meetings break into groups of no more than 10 attendees to allow personal networking hence the name, though most meet-ups have between 30-50 women in attendance.

    Meetings normally have a short official element followed by drinks. We then feature two or three handpicked speakers before breaking into small groups for networking and discussion.
