Call for Speakers

Women Techmakers Vienna is an event that envisions empowering women to pursue careers in the STEM fields; these encompass science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Women Techmakers Vienna focuses on raising the public awareness through the power of example of existing gender issues and possible solutions.

We are in search of engaging speakers and workshop facilitators that can provide interesting technical or social-aspect talks and workshops, highlighting their experiences.

Your talk needs to be in English and you will have a time slot of 30 minutes. There will be no Q&A session.

Your workshop needs to be in English and you will have a time slot of 60, 90 or 120 minutes.

  • Technical talks should be about a subject that belongs to the STEM fields, presented in a fun and introductory manner since the attendees might lack the speaker’s fundamental knowledge on the subject. They should highlight your personal achievement and success story, more than the technical aspects.
  • Social-aspect talks should demonstrate causes, examples, solutions for gender issues and be empowering young (and not only) women that pursue, or plan to pursue a career in STEM.
  • Workshops can either be empowering for solutions relevant to gender issues, or hands-on workshops for STEM related topics.

In order to be selected, we require a short introduction about yourself and a draft outline of your talk.
