WITCon - Student-Led Conference (Looking for Speakers)

VUW Women in Tech exists to create a space for women and gender diverse voices in STEM. We connect students to industry by running networking events and sharing job and internship opportunities. We also organise social events to build our community.

We invite talks for the Victoria University of Wellington Women in Tech 2020 Conference (WITCon) to be held at VUW Kelburn Campus on Friday 28th August 2020. WITCon is a conference designed to bring students and industry together to discuss technical and social topics surrounding STEM. There will be an exciting keynote speaker, multiple shorter seminars, an interactive Q&A panel and plenty of opportunities to network. This conference was designed to give something to everyone. Anyone working in or around tech will have something to gain from WITcon, whether they are a developer, human resources person, student, tech enthusiast, lecturer, biologist, manager, data scientist, engineer, chemist, gamer, or intern. Ticket sales will open on 1st July. Currently, WITCon is looking for speakers and submission are open from now till 30th June 2020.

Talk topics:
We invite talks from all STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, Math) companies and students.
We want to hear from any student or industry member with a passion for science, engineering, technology, design, and more. We want to fit as many voices as possible into this one-day conference, so we ask that full talks are approximately 15 minutes (and no longer than 20 minutes) to allow for a bit of question time at the end of each presentation. These talks can include research insights and case studies, and should cover any of the following themes:

Theme 1: Diversity in tech (women, minorities, Māori tech, integration, inclusion, policies)
Theme 2: Preparing for post-study (finding mentors, CVs, making the most of internships)
Theme 3: Technology and the environment
Theme 4: Engineering in the 21st century - new technologies, innovation and data
Theme 5: Social media and digital marketing
Theme 6: Discussion and discovery in other STEAM industries - Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Math, Design, etc.

We are open to individuals submitting talks for more than one theme, however, at most ONLY ONE talk will be chosen per individual. Each talk will need to be submitted individually.

Closes 30th June 11:59pm
