Calling Women in Business

Calling Women in Business


How can we get more women to play a central role in technology? The Wired Women Conference: Celebrating and Empowering Women in Tech showcases the women thought leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators who are shaping the digital economy in South Africa, while empowering delegates with practical strategies and ideas for personal advancement.

“This is an exciting addition to the QualityLife calendar for women in business and tech who are committed to innovation in their organisations and who want to learn how the digital economy can fast-track their careers,” says Debbie Edelstein, the conference’s organizer.
