Welcome to GroWiT

Where women in tech develop

What is GroWiT?

GroWiT (Growing Women in IT) is a community that focuses in on the issues impacting the career development of female technology professionals today. Our sessions feature keynote speakers who have tackled interesting challenges on their way to achieving incredible outcomes. All of our events are designed to be very inclusive, open and informal. It’s your chance to ask questions of inspiring technology and business leaders so that we can all explore and unleash the potential of females within the IT industry. We are committed to helping technology focused businesses drive their diversity and inclusion agendas, offering advice and practical guidance around how to deliver positive action. Because after all, diverse teams are more productive teams.

Attend our next GroWiT event

We have partnered with Global and are taking GroWiT outdoors for the first time to a spectacular roof terrace in the West End of London. Join us for an evening of practical advice and discussion around how to drive a more diverse and inclusive workforce. Diversity and inclusion has seen a real shift from being an internal initiative in pockets of the organisation to a board level priority as evidence becomes clearer around tangible links to performance and growth. It seems everyone is talking about diversity, but this event is geared to not just discuss the issues and challenges but to present best practices around how organisations can drive the shift to becoming more inclusive. We are all convinced on the why. This is about the how.

Balance for Better Business Outcomes

I thought the speakers were great and really engaging. They addressed the concerns I had on how to drive the diversity agenda without vilifying the men in the work place and without just playing a numbers game.
Really enjoyed the evening and was impressed by the number of males in the audience - looking forward to the next one.
