Innovation. Inspiration. Inclusion.
June 21-22, 2022
Online

Forward-thinking women understand that climate change is an urgent challenge, a generational responsibility … AND a professional opportunity. The good news is that we women in technology are the world’s best bet in the fight for a clean, healthy, and sustainable planet.

And we have the tools to do it: Digital Transformation (DX) helps organizations do a better job of both delivering their traditional value propositions and creating new ones – especially those focused on sustainability. Accenture finds that by using public cloud services, enterprises could cut their IT-related greenhouse gas emissions by some 6%, the equivalent of taking 22 million cars off the road.

At the crux of achieving sustainability through DX are exciting new technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things. This will create both technical and non-technical career opportunities, and WITI is here to help you explore them.

Accelerating Digital Transformation for the Environment

This provoking curtain-raiser video on the role of digital technology in accelerating environmental sustainability was produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

Coaching Circle

As women in traditional workplaces, we are often confronted with a double bind - show up as likable and be seen as less competent or worthy of leadership, or show up as competent and risk being seen as less likable.

195 - Coaching Circle: The Alchemy of Resilience (Limited Seating — Reserve My Seat)

Our world is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA). We are currently recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic whilst reeling from the effects of increased incidences of police brutality, gun violence, gender-based violence, terrorism, kidnappings, domestic violence, bullying, divorces, and many other traumatic events. We have to be resilient to survive and thrive in this VUCA world. RESILIENCE is that ability to adapt well in the face of seemingly strong and persistent adversity. It is an essential skill for coping with the many obstacles we face in our lives. Unfortunately, the measures taken to keep the world safe have negatively affected many persons, families, and relationships. Due to the high level of trauma in our world today, many people don't really know what to do, how to cope, or how to make a comeback after being held in the throes of trauma for a lengthy time.

In this Coaching Circle you'll join Winifred Ereyi, a Certified Trauma Integrated Brain Health Coach and Leadership trainer, to learn about trauma, its effects on the body and brain, and how to build resilience in the face of your difficulties.

211 - Keynote: Standing at a Pivotal Moment in Human History

The digital revolution could be the single largest opportunity to achieve systems-level changes aligned to sustainable development goals (SDGs) – or the largest risk to entrench business as usual and accelerate the death of our planet. We need to harness the power while mitigating the risk. This will require not just one organization but unprecedented collaboration across government, companies, civil society, and more. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is facing this challenge head on, as a key member of its Digital Transformation Task Force, Pooja Munshi, shares with us today.

Breakout Workshop

We’re all aware of the impact of our actions in relation to carbon emission and energy efficiency in our daily lives - and with mindful energy use, reducing that impact through recycling and travel. But what about the software we design and build? Are we really aware of the impact software has on our environment, especially when deployed at scale? There is work being done to help figure out the impact of currently-running software, but ... is there a better way? As many companies shift their focus to sustainability, let's predict and improve our software environmental impact with the help of designers, software engineers, data scientists, and strategists. Join us to learn more about the challenge of carbon reduction through patterns, practices, and collaboration with the Green Software Foundation to improve (a) energy efficiency, (b) hardware efficiency, and (c) carbon awareness.

291 - Coaching Circle: Transcending Rules, Roles & Controls in the Workplace (Limited Seating — Reserve My Seat)

Coaching Circle

Almost every woman at some point has experienced walking into a meeting fully prepared to present her idea, and then choked. Even Angela Merkel, the former Chancellor of Germany, claims to have spent entire nights prepping for meetings because she felt insecure. WITI's Carolyn Leighton has referred to this as the Collective Insecurity of Women. Dr. Deborah Sandella, award-winning psychotherapist and author of "Goodbye Hurt and Pain,” originated a method called Regenerating Images in Memory (R.I.M.) that uses our imagination to free us of the negative thoughts, feelings, and memories that cause us to choke. R.I.M. is a body-centered transformational method based in science that feels like magic.

During this coaching circle, you’ll have an opportunity to experience this method for yourself. In addition, you'll be participating in the first step of a research project to validate that this methodology has the power to change not only your life but the lives of millions of women working in technology.

In this interactive session, you’ll learn practical, actionable strategies to help you authentically promote your value across your organization.
