At the initiative of BNP Paribas, and with the help of the Digital Ladies & Allies and BECOMTECH associations, “Women & Girls in Tech” was born in 2019 from the desire to deconstruct stereotypes in the Tech professions, inspire women and girls to pursue a career in this field, and encourage women and girls from various generations to feel justified in their choice of a career path in digital technology.

Conferences, round tables, and more: all ways of finding out about the different opportunities in technology, inspiring career paths, deconstructing clichés, and allowing women to take their rightful place in Tech.
