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.  Regular 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.
