Hubs is excited to be hosting Do Develop Disrupt x Women in Tech Talks, a three-day online event focused on helping women develop their careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The number of STEM jobs available is on the rise, but women are still underrepresented in these fields at every level, from junior roles to upper management. We want to show young women the opportunities that come from working in tech, like the chance to be involved in cutting-edge innovations and the competitive salaries. Our roster of speakers will highlight how they've achieved success and provide a roadmap for other aspiring STEM workers.

We also want to spark candid conversations about overcoming gender bias and making the STEM workplace more inclusive. Discussing these issues is key to improving the recruitment process and creating an even better work culture.

Finally, to stay true to the tech part of the event. We have several interesting tech specific talks, ranging from NFTs to Machine Learning. Because in this field we are always learning and in a constant search to stay on top of the latest technologies.
