The 2018 Women in Tech Index has ranked Portugal one of the best countries for women pursuing a career in technology.

We have invited Rita Piçarra, CFO for Microsoft Portugal; Helena Geirinhas, the Coordinator of the Gender Balance Project at Instituto Técnico de Lisboa; and Inês Santos Silva, the founder of Portuguese Women in Tech, to address important topics that affect Women in Tech.

On this riveting panel, we discussed why is Portugal doing so well and what else needs to be done to achieve parity, how we can break down the stereotypes, the pioneers of computing and the artificially generated gap, and how can we encourage more young women to choose computer sciences instead of the more “typical” choices for women, among other topics and amazing stories from the speakers.
