Women of InfoComm NetworkBreakfast

11 February 2015, 08:00-09:30, First Edition Restaurant, RAI Exhibition Centre

Sarah Joyce, Vice President, EMEA, of Electrosonic Ltd & Diana Danziger, an international organisational development and leadership consultant at Inez Consulting Ltd

There is no shortage of research and experience to confirm that there is a significant gender imbalance in the technology industry. Many words have been written and spoken about why this is and what the industry needs to do to put it right. This session will explore what women - and men - in the industry can do to encourage women into successful and long-term careers in technology rather than waiting for the industry as a whole to catch up.

Sarah Joyce, Vice President, EMEA, of Electrosonic Ltd, and a member of the InfoComm International Board of Directors, will share her leadership journey in technology, which spans almost 20 years. She will reflect on what her experience has taught her about how women can make better use of a variety of sources of support that can help them unleash their talent and progress in this highly male-dominated industry.

Following Joyce's presentation, Diana Danziger, an international organisational development and leadership consultant at Inez Consulting Ltd, will discuss some of the ways in which individuals, especially women, diminish their own skills and potential, and keep their careers from moving forward: self-limiting beliefs, unconscious bias and expectations that serve to block rather than unlock capability. This will be an interactive session, with practical activity to personalise the experience and raise awareness of what can be done, on an individual basis, to promote - in every sense of the word - women in technology.

The session will conclude with a roundtable discussion to solicit input from participants regarding activities the Women of InfoComm Network Council should perform in Europe. There will be ample time to network and get to know others. Attendees can sign up for the breakfast during registration at a cost of €40.
