Career development and the volition to be involved in advancing the industry are at the top of the agenda. The theme Level up! calls for constant development, both within companies and in the work lives of individuals. The Women in Tech conference has grown every year. In 2020, 2,100 tech women gathered at Waterfront in Stockholm. Tickets are free thanks to the commitment of more than 20 of Sweden’s companies focusing on tech – Schibsted being one of them.
“In addition to the inflow to the industry, we also have a job to stop the outflow. The women who are already working in the tech industry are needed, and need the right conditions to stay. What Women in Tech can contribute with is to continue to put the spotlight on role models and open up more paths to a larger and more diverse network, says Elin Eriksson, Director of Women in Tech Sweden in a press release.
At the conference in May Schibsted is going to be present in many different ways. On stage, we will see Director of engineering at Schibsted, Agnieszka Lasyk. Agnieszka will host a focus session on the topic “Happy team = effective team”, where she will deep-dive into what makes the team and its members happy and self-fulfilled, and how it could be accomplished in the workplace.
You can also meet Schibsted at the stand on floor 4.
