IDSIA's researchers at WeTechTogether
01 October 2022
Usually IDSIA's researchers attend scientific conferences presenting their results, but this was a special occasion. The fourth edition of the WeTechTogether conference brought together several female tech communities such as Girls in tech CH, SwissTecLadies, Woman in AI, to empower, engage and celebrate women in tech and two female researchers from IDSIA, Sandra Mitrović and Maria Camila Alvarez Triviño, participated to this event.

The WeTechTogether conference, organized by Techface, took place in Zurich on 30.09-01.10 2022.

Several highly-ranked position women coming from big Swiss companies talked about their careers in tech and gave advice on professional growth.

The event featured different workshops enclosing different topics like leadership, soft skills, but also discussing more technical aspects and pointing out some practical tools. In particular, the ethical AI workshop brought up hands-on methods to implement fairness in AI-solutions utilizing data with sensitive attributes.

The event promoted networking and also created a
space for female entrepreneurs to talk about their struggles and success stories in tech, which are relatable and inspirational in a field where women are still a minority.
