What Is Power Women?
Dreamtek’s Power Women is a series of networking events started and co-hosted by Dreamtek’s CEO, Victoria Neeson, and VP, Hannah Massam. After spending years attending networking events and attempting, and failing, to find one dedicated to women in technology or specific to AV/video production, the idea for Power Women was formed.
Like many industries, there is a lack of female representation at all levels within technology, including C-suite. Power Women’s goal is to acknowledge current gender, diversity and inequality issues within an organisation, and discuss how we can deliver greater innovation and performance by driving diversity across all sectors within the technology industry, and across all levels from schools to the boardroom.
We also hope to create an environment in which we can build and nurture meaningful relationships between peers who share the same values, and allow those new to the industry to meet women and mentors who have already had success in the industry. This enables women to learn from each others successes, stories, and to work together to tackle injustices professionally and exchange ideas to propel awareness and boost confidence.
