Fifth Edition of Women in IT Day: Lessons Learned from Previous Editions
On November 15th, women from all over Europe will gather online for the
fifth edition of Women in IT Day. Why? To consciously develop their careers
in the tech industry. This free event is aimed at ambitious women who wish
to acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in the world of IT.
The event is organized by Future Collars. Joanna Pruszyńska-Witkowska, co-
founder of Future Collars and co-organizer of Women in IT Day, highlights the
directions and actions of the event. These insights emphasize the four main
benefits the event offers its participants, showcasing its invaluable worth for
women in IT.
1. Access to knowledge for all
We understood that many talented women come from smaller towns where access to specialized IT
knowledge might be limited. Our solution? Online workshops that allow participation from every
corner of the country. This ensures that regardless of their residence, every woman has the
opportunity to enhance her skills.
2. The Power of mentoring
Mentoring is not just about imparting knowledge, but primarily about building relationships and
providing support during challenging career moments. That’s why we’ve created a platform that
allows young professionals to connect with experienced industry experts. We believe that such
collaboration can be the key to success.
3. Balance between professional and personal life
Women in the IT industry often face challenges related to balancing their professional and family
lives. That’s why our program includes panels that help find the perfect balance between work and
4. Career as a Project
We emphasize the importance of treating one’s career as a project. Planning, setting goals, and
striving to achieve them are crucial for success in the IT world. Our aim is to provide participants with
the tools that will assist them in realizing their professional dreams.
Women in IT Day is not just an occasion to celebrate the achievements of women in the tech industry
but primarily a platform for exchanging experiences and acquiring new skills. We eagerly await future
editions and the new lessons they will bring – concludes Joanna Pruszyńska-Witkowska.
