  • 📅 Santander and MongoDB invite you to the new edition of the Women in Tech Summit next 17 November. Women in Tech is an initiative to reduce the gender gap in tech, encouraging more women to develop their careers in this sector and building a more inclusive tech industry.
  • 📍 It will take place at Ironhack Matadero (Madrid – see on Google Maps), where inspirational female leaders will share their experiences and insights. Attendees will have the opportunity to get a mentoring session (mark that option on the registration forms (only available for in-person attendance)) and enjoy networking with good company!
  • 👀 If you are finishing your STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) studies or have decided to pivot your career into tech, this event is for you!

According to Unesco, only 11% of women reach leadership positions in the IT sector. That’s why, as a technology company, we want to break these barriers and encourage more women to develop their careers in the STEAM industry to turn the statistics and achieve a more inclusive and egalitarian tech world 👩🏻‍💻.

Women in Tech Summit: #FutureWIT22

On November 17th we will celebrate together with MongoDB, our Summit where we will count with inspiring women within the technology industry, professionals from Santander, MongoDB, and other companies. They will share with us their experiences and, under the slogan “The Future of Women in Tech”, they will talk about how they see the future of women in the STEAM world, as well as explain the value of women in innovation and how to prepare for leadership positions.

Why should you come? 🙌

This event is aimed for Women who are taking their first professional steps, finishing their studies in STEAM careers, or want to pivot their career to the tech world.

This year the event will be held in person (although if you are outside Madrid, it will also be available in live streaming), and speakers from companies such as Santander, MongoDB, CISCO, Microsoft, and PagoNxt will participate. In addition, there will be a personalized Speed Mentoring session, where attendees will be able to share doubts and experiences with several mentors, raffles, networking … and much more!

⚠️ In-person seats are limited

Tech has no gender ❌

In Santander, we defend diversity in all its aspects, and we work every day to break stereotypes and gender barriers, especially in technology, where the gap is higher.

Did you know that only 26% of women work in the IT world? In Santander, we exceed this figure with 31% of women in the Technology and Operations teams.

But we are ambitious and that is why we have initiatives such as Women in Tech, which are part of our Be Tech! with Santander career plan. We seek to ensure women’s access to management positions, create references for future generations and, of course, break stereotypes.

We are waiting for you!
