Web Heroines runs conference for women

This week has seen the inaugural Emerge mini-conference. The three-day event has showcased industry talent through a number of workshops, interviews, panels and talks – all by women – aiming to encourage more women into design and technology and further inspire those already immersed in it.

Keri Lambden told us that she set up Web Heroines after finding herself at a conference where she was "pretty much the only female in the room"; she said: "I got talking with other women who shared my enthusiasm for setting up an organisation specifically to engage and inspire more women into the design and tech industries." Now three-strong, the Web Heroines team created Emerge to bring together people from all over the world through online talks and workshops, augmented by a live panel debate at the British Library, to discuss issues surrounding women in design and tech, along with celebrating the amazing talent in the industry.
