A Conference to celebrate

Women in Digital Careers

 Level 39 / Canary Wharf / 26 November 2013 / London


Women Shift Digital is a conference for women and men, designed to celebrate women in digital careers, network the networks and influence the influencers. It is a day to reflect collectively on the positive impacts women are making with digital-led careers as creatives, managers and executives in creative industries, education, business, design, skills development and the arts.

We are inviting women and men, active talents in the digital sector, ready to input, share ideas, make new partners and move forward together.


This special gathering will feature inspiring keynote speakers and panelists, demonstrations and debates from leaders and movers in micro-enterprises to SMEs, institutions to companies. 


Confirmed speakers and participants include:  Chi Onwurah (Newcastle upon Tyne Central MP, currently Shadow Cabinet Office Minister and former Shadow Minister for Innovation, Science & Digital Infrastructure), Kate Russell (Technology Reporter, BBC Click & Author of ‘Working The Cloud’), Dr Sue Black (Senior Research Associate in Computer Science, University College London/the goto Foundation), Ghislaine Boddington (body>data>space/Middlesex University), Eric van der Kleij (Director Level39), Dinis Guarda (CEO Intelligent HQ), Anne-Marie Imafidon (Stemettes), Ron Edwards (QA), Emilie Giles (Codasign), Sarah Platt (Kinura / Sayansho), Will Harvey (Ogilvy), Paola Cuneo (UK Trade and Investment), Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino (Designswarm / Internet of Things), Colin Hicks (Cultural Broker), Rachel Coldicutt (Caper/Articulate),  Magdalena Kron (Geek Girl Meetup UK), Richard Adams (Microsoft), Roberta Lucca (Bossa Studios), Evelyn Wilson (TCCE), Haidee Bell (Nesta Innovations Programmes),  Dr. Mitra Memarzia (IC tomorrow / Social Media Week London), Christoph Jankowski (UK Cultural Contact Point), Paula Graham (Flossbox), Derek Richards (Hi8us South), Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield) Michael DaCosta Babb (Management Consultant) and more


This is the right point in time to recognise and celebrate the greater benefits gender balance is bringing to the digital and tech marketplace in terms of creativity, user design and economic added value. Underusing the talent, skills, visions and knowledge offered by women is no longer an option - we need to work together, women and men, to design our future.
