This event has now ended.

Our Digital Her programme takes the spotlight, featuring inspiring talks, workshops & panels for women in tech.

These include keynotes & panel discussions led by industry leaders, lightning talks by members our community of Role Models, training sessions, conversation cafes & the creation of a Digital Her Pledge for a more equitable future.

It’s a chance for women to connect, upskill & feel inspired, and is supported by organisations passionate about gender equity in the digital sector.

Digital Her’s mission is to help end gender inequality in the technology sector. We inspire and encourage women across Greater Manchester to pursue careers in digital, and support women already working in tech to thrive.
