Have you heard? She Does Digital and Hey! have collaborated to create an epic mini-conference, packed with incredible speakers.
The two Leeds-based digital initiatives have come together to help raise awareness of women in tech, with the aim to shed light on what we can all do to inspire more females to get involved.
She Does Digital was founded to encourage more women to enter the industry. Only 26% of employees in digital are currently female, and She Does Digital aim to change this by showcasing the many female role models and career options out there.
Hey! provide a platform for people to discuss anything from mental health to software development. Running events in a relaxed environment, they bring the best of the community together to share and inspire.
This event is perfect if you’re interested in working in digital, or already do and just want to kick back with a drink and listen to some great talks. We have talks from:
* Xuefei Wen - AI Developer, Crisp Thinking
* Sommer Croft - Programme Manager, NHS Digital
* Kimberley Bottomley - Head of CX, Cocoon and Organiser at NUX
* Christina Xu - Director and Founder, China Marketing Corp
* Arianne Donoghue - Paid Media Development Manager, Epiphany
* Gintare Gervyte - Conversion Rate Optimisation Analyst, Epiphany
We'll be kicking the evening off with a word from Xuefei Wen. She’s a Machine Learning Developer at Crisp Thinking who works on cutting-edge AI that automatically identifies ‘toxic’ content online such as pornography, gore, or terrorist propaganda, from image and video data to protect followers of some of the world’s biggest brands.
Enjoy the same brilliant Hey! format at their home at the Belgrave and fantastic content from She Does Digital in their third year at the festival.
Tickets are free but limited. Check @shedoesdigital and @hey_stac for details.
