Female Tech Leaders Speaker Night @ Microsoft

  • Microsoft Germany 5 Walter-Gropius-Straße München, BY, 80807 Germany (map)

It’s time for round two of our Female Tech Leaders Speaker Night!

Our mission is still the same. At Female Tech Leaders, we believe that one of the best ways to get more women to join (and stay) in STEM fields is by exposing them to the leading role models of their industry. Munich does not have a strong female representation of the tech scene yet, but we are here to change that. Join us, as we spend an evening of inspiring talks with three industry experts, then close up with food, drinks and networking! Both men and women are invited to this event, since both genders can benefit greatly from the insights to be gained from our speakers and their experiences. Just make sure you sign up for a free ticket with the link provided!
