Women are leaving their stamp on STEM despite microaggressions, biases, sexism and other hurdles. But there is still a long way to go. That’s why Udacity wants to give women the opportunity to learn in-demand tech skills, while providing a virtual conference to connect with female leaders in the industry.
Forbes cited a Bloomberg report that found corporations with gender-balanced teams have a higher return on equity. Yet women are still vastly underrepresented. So let’s talk about it.
This event for Europe, Middle East, UK and Africa will be in collaboration with thought leaders and activists who are passionate about progressing the industry. We want to do our part in shifting the paradigm. Join us on November 30th, and learn how companies built internal and external pipelines of female data scientists, software engineers, machine learning engineers and other roles in cutting-edge technologies through transforming their talent.

Empowering women to succeed in STEM.
Despite global discussion about gender diversity in STEM, women are still underrepresented, underpaid and often discriminated against in these industries. Udacity is here to change that by giving #WomenWhoFuture the opportunity to learn in-demand tech skills, while providing a platform to connect with female leaders in the industry.
Closing the gender gap at your company isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also been proven to be better for your business outcomes. Forbes cited a Bloomberg report that found corporations with gender-balanced teams have a higher return on equity. Adding more women to your team means more innovation when it comes to shaping new products, technologies and initiatives.
