Female Network Forum

Female Network Forum

Thank you for the first Female Network Forum!

“Cooperation and networking are essential for all of us because our networks can grow, we can help more women, and companies can take stand for equality. Our collaboration completes a life cycle,” the conclusion voiced by several networks during the panel discussion at Female Network Forum in Gothenburg.

When we were planning the event, we couldn’t anticipate how much interest the event will get. We got fully booked in less than a week, and we had over 100 people on the waiting list. Last week, we gathered 200 participants at our first Female Network Forum, and it felt truly amazing. Thank you for being together with us and sharing your feedback.

We would like to thank Women in IT (kvinnor.it), WiTech, Sigma Smart Women Society, Pink Programming, 1928 Diagnostics for a successful Female Network Forum event.

We also thank our partners, Celcius, Innerstaden, Nordic Wellness, Blomsterlandet, Hagabadet, and FAST Sverige for sponsoring goodie bags for our guests.

We are now planning future activities for Female Network Forum. Would you like to stay informed and get information about future events? Sign up here: https://sigmatechnology.typeform.com/to/vRWVra
