For the first time in 10 years, WIL Europe will meet outside of Europe, in the fascinating city of Dubai, where we will be kindly hosted by our Member Céline Bremaud at Microsoft UAE.
A great way to celebrate our accomplishments and share our mission with non-European organisations!
The gathering will take place on the 5th of March 2020 and will explore the topics of Tech for Good and Women in Leadership. In addition, those who wish are invited to a cultural visit, on Friday, March 6 in the morning (tbc)!
Many thanks to our event host Microsoft and our event partners Lenovo and INSEAD!
