Convince Your Boss: The Key to Career Advancement

Attending the Women in Tech Global Conference 2024 presents a valuable opportunity for women in the tech industry to advance their professional development. WTGC2024 serves as a pivotal milestone, equipping you with the necessary tools to thrive in your career. To maximize the benefits of this experience, secure the support of your organization by effectively communicating to your manager the advantages of attending the event. By highlighting the potential for individual growth and the alignment with company objectives, you can demonstrate the value it brings to both your personal and professional advancement.

Regardless of your level of experience, it’s important to continue growing professionally by participating in online summits, webinars, and conferences. It is equally important to inform your manager about your plans, so you can fully dive into the event and enjoy the experience.

Three impactful points to impress your boss

Here are some tips to help convince your manager how investing in your professional development will benefit your organization, so you can receive “the green light” to use your working hours to learn from top industry experts, expand your network and upgrade your skills. 

Tip 1:
Emphasize that this is a virtual conference, so there is no cost associated with travel or accommodations. The ticket is the only expense, and we’ve intentionally kept the price low to make it affordable!

Tip 2:
Review the tracks and speakers, and create a list of topics and sessions you'd like to attend. Tie them to responsibilities associated with your current position or ways you’d like to grow in your career.

Tip 3:
Define your top three reasons for attending and how it will contribute to your professional growth and benefit the company

Explain to your manager as clearly as possible why this conference is unique and why it is worth attending. Don’t forget to mention that the mission of the network is to unite 1 000 000 women in tech to learn from each other and make an impact together. 

You will want to add that you will position the company while networking with other international participants from all over the world. 
You can also mention that learning from world-leading speakers who are experts in the tech field will help you (and thus your company) save time (which equals money) to figure it out on your own. Check out which tracks are the most relevant to your company.

Outline the above points in a conversation or email to your manager. See the template below for suggestions.

We hope you found these tips helpful. We are looking forward to seeing you at our conference! Stay safe!
