What we're about

The purpose of "Women in Digital Switzerland" is to bring together women working in digital in Switzerland, encourage thought leadership, networking, and sharing of best practices through discussion and presentations.

Our meet-ups are a 'for the community, by the community' type of event. Monthly presentations are held by community members at no charge to attendees, topics are chosen by the volunteer speaker or the community and we all pitch into the "after the event" cocktail hour by bringing a homemade dish, appetizer, or something to drink.

By becoming a paid member of Women in Digital Switzerland, you help contribute to the organization of city events, our larger annual event, and the operational costs of keeping up communication and our website. The yearly fee to become a member of WDS is 60 chf. You can register on our website https://womenindigitalswitzerland.com

Lastly, -- and we are asked this quite often! -- yes, men are welcome to join our meetups too! We welcome the support of all peers in our quest to raise the visibility of talented digital professionals across the country.
