Digitalization has made its way into every economic sector. For this reason the conference Women in Digital Business is addressing women no matter what their field or how large their company is. The goal? To have female managers and experts help shape the latest digital developments in their companies. In addition, participants receive best practice examples and recommendations for their own professional careers.
