[PANEL] Women in Tech | Dubai | International Women's Day 2021 x Nodes

“The future of our world is only as bright as the future of our girls.” - Michelle Obama

Join us for a virtual panel with local female leaders in technology as we #ChooseToChallenge on International Women’s Day 2021.

IWD is an opportunity for us to reflect and celebrate the progress we have made in many ways to create a culture that addresses gender and power gap. It’s also the time for us to shape our dreams for a better world for the future generations.

This year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge, highlights the importance of challenging biases and misconceptions in the interest of creating a more inclusive and gender-equal world.

Nodes celebrates International Women’s Day by inviting all the brave women in technology to share their experiences and achievements in an industry that still remains male-dominated and continues to display bias against women in technology.

Speakers
Rebecca Hudson - Executive Delivery Director, MENA at Nodes
Sana Alam - Managing Director at Crank Recruitment
Chada El Islam Benmahcene - Senior Product Manager at BakerHughes | Dubai Women in Tech LeanIn Circle Co-Lead
Priyanka Ranjan - Director of Engineering at TribalScale
