I'd like to share with you how to make the most of your time at the conference. So tip number one as you can, you, you have already made use of our chat. Continue using it for asking your questions for sharing ideas, for sharing your thoughts. Whenever something resonates with you, I want you to share in the chat, please respect others and, and um, and say what you think in a way that won't offend anyone, check out our partner booth area and find out the exciting projects they're working on during the networking breaks.

You can go to the networking area and make use out of uh out of one on one networking. It's like in real life, you know, you meet a person and you start having a chat, just enjoy it. I know nowadays you really miss this uh face to face interaction. But with this video and this uh virtual conference uh platforms, it's possible. So I want you to enjoy this, this benefit that the platform has to offer. And before I will introduce our first speaker, I'd like to share with you a little bit more about my journey and how we got started with women tech network and how it came, how women tech global conference came to life. So some years back, my journey got started with Coding girls. Coding Girls is a global nonprofit helping girls and women to get into technology. We do that by organizing inspirational meetups, practical workshops and courses for beginners. Before starting with coding girls, I found out that there is a problem that there are just a few women attack. And I was, and I thought to myself at first, probably there is a problem like in the childhood when girls and boys are treated differently and we girls are often seeing lots of female role models intact and that also contributes towards them later deciding to get into more female like careers.

And girls from early ages are often called, called princesses and boys are called brave and that also shapes their mindset. So I thought probably, probably, probably the problem starts in the childhood. And then we started to organize different workshops for kids and girls, girls focused and they love them. And they were super excited, they started to share with their parents the project that they've been working on. And that time we started working with uh one with scratch.

And uh one of the people who also helped a lot during that time was one of our, one of our team members at Coding Girls. Maria Toda. I'd like to say thanks to her and um co-founder, I will help a lot also. Um also other people who have tuned in as um mentors as uh as ambassadors uh from, from all over the world. And the most proud moment I I I'd say in moody girls was to the, the moment we expanded to um uh to Kampala in Uganda. And that was a totally different experience, but we really love the impact it has made. And many thanks to people who supported us on the very supportive companies, ambassadors. Thank you very much. And then, you know, we have uh many, many women started to get in touch with us to help them find uh a job where they can thrive. And many companies started to get in touch with us to help them create a more diverse and inclusive environment and help them attract and retain more women and technology. And that's how the women tech network was born and we want you to use all the opportunities that it has to offer to support each other to collaborate and to thrive. And are you ready for the first speaker to announce?

Are you ready for the first speaker to join on this stage? I am super excited to share with you that the first speaker who who is going to join us is going to be Emerald Delo Privacy and Data Ethics specialist at Logitech. Emerald is also a founder at Emerald delo.com. She will share why we need to think beyond privacy and security. So all things human tech and data ethics. Emerald. Hi Emerald.
