The International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) is hosting its 2nd meeting of women ICT professionals in the city of Porto, Portugal, Wednesday June 27, 2018. Registration is free and open to all professional, technology-minded women!
Building upon the successful launch of this initiative last year in Lisbon, the WIT-IAMCP seeks to attract women to the information technology sector and support them in their rise to IT leadership positions, eliminating barriers and taboos that still persist today. During the event, organizers will present the values and objectives of the professional network, taking the first step in sharing and accessing information, creating a mutual-aided community.
This community has the direct support of Microsoft and its Portuguese subsidiary of the IAMCP, a Microsoft network partner association, of which WIT is one of the most important initiatives.
BindTuning CEO and Microsoft MVP, Beatriz Oliveira, who is a main organizer of the event says:
It is an honor to have the opportunity to be part of the organization of this event. Porto is a fantastic city, which is growing in the IT area at an amazing pace. It is even more important to think about the role of women in this market and to encourage opportunities for socialization and empowerment for women.
This network of professionals can be inspiring - attracting more women to this sector who will cultivate their own regular networking initiatives and participate more fully in forums that contribute to the realization of increased opportunities for women in the Microsoft ecosystem.
