In a unique industry collaboration, Bonnier joins forces with MTG, Google, Spotify, TeliaSonera and Schibsted to provide the platform and network for the Women in Tech event on March 8, 2016.
For the third consecutive year there will be a Women In Tech event on International Women’s Day, March 8, in Stockholm. Six of Sweden's largest media and tech companies stand behind the event. Along with Bonnier, they are MTG, TeliaSonera, Google, Spotify and Schibsted.
In this unique collaboration, the largest companies in the industry join forces and together create a platform for women interested in the media and tech industries to meet and build networks for the future. A "Save the date" for the event, which will be held in Stockholm Conference Center, was sent out on the WIT Facebook and received an overwhelming response.
"With our strategy of transforming our businesses and brands, we see an urgent need to get the best teams possible onboard. And those teams should consist of a diversity of people to be able to meet the demands from our diverse customers. By supporting Women in Tech, we hope to inspire more women to go for a future in media and tech. Because we need them," says Anki Ahrnell, Chief Digital Officer at Bonnier AB.
"In the last year we have hired some 400 new techies, and as you can see on our job listings, many of our companies are looking for talent to help us achieve our goals of providing excellent user experiences within media."
Women in Tech started as an event on International Women’s Day in 2014. Over the years, the event has grown into a community, a platform and a movement. The mission for the initiative is to inspire talented women to consider a future in media and technology by providing the network and experience of successful women and men from the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds.
