Tech Show London 2022 celebrates 70% female representation in main stage keynotes

In an industry so progressive, yet one that has seen predominantly male leadership, we are pleased to welcome this list of global tech leaders including: Ivana Bartoletti OBE, Dr Samira Asma, Tiffany Hall, Debbie Forster OBE, Caroline Gorski, Maggie Philbin OBE, Sara Milne.

These people also represent a cross section of disciplines and the importance of technology in the future of large infrastructures: health care (Dr Asma, WHO), security (Ivana Bartoletti OBE, Wipro), education (Tiffany Hall and Maggie Philbin OBE ), data , (Caroline Gorski, R2 Data Labs), Engineering – Lloyd’s Bank. At Tech Show London 2022, they are joined by other luminaries. Notably – Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, will offer a video plenary.

Sophie Baker-Davis, Head of Marketing and Content at CloserStill, said: “We have ensured that a wide range of backgrounds and experiences are included in the program. Our selection was based on accomplishments rather than years in the field.

Organizing the main stage represented six months of dedicated work by CloserStill’s industry-leading technology team. While the company is thrilled to welcome such a canon of female experts, there is a realization within the company that there is still a lot of work to be done. Baker-Davis explains, “In managing the technology portfolio across the world, we have at times struggled with a truly diverse representation of speakers based on age, ability, gender and ethnicity.” She adds:

“However, providing an inclusive platform for the industry is high on our agenda and something we want to improve in 2022 and beyond.”

CloserStill welcomes support in achieving its values ​​of diversity and inclusion. If you are an organization that would like to partner with us or have feedback and ideas to offer on the subject of exhibits, inclusion and accessibility, please contact [email protected]
