2017 saw the first live stream, in association with Alexander Mann Solutions, of the everywoman Forum: Advancing Women in Technology event to over 100 delegates in Cisco's Krakow office. The sold out event was a great success and delegates left feeling galvanised and invigorated, armed with practical tools and techniques to begin advancing their careers in technology.
Delegates were able to participate live and have their say by using the Slido App which allowed participants to take part in votes and polls as well as ask real time questions.
"“First thank you for enabling us to join Advancing Women in Technology Forum. It was a great and energizing event. Also, thanks to slido App we felt that we were actually participating in this event by asking questions and votes in polls. […] I hope that we will join more events like Advancing Women in Technology Forum. Because this one was very motivating, energizing and also a great opportunity for networking.”
Streaming delegate: GE Healthcare, Poland
