Women in Tech


As technology is a sector that still has to work on diversity, Academics for Technology does its part to improve the numbers. The goal is to inspire, encourage and support students by offering them the opportunity to connect with women who are currently working in the tech world.
At the Women in Tech Gala we celebrate leading ladies in technology. We invite 4-6 women with proven track records to take the stage and inspire us all. In our 2020 edition we welcomed Caroline De Vos (Founding Partner & COO at SatADSL S.A.), Dewi Van De Vyver (CEO at Flow Pilots), Ellen Lemaire (Digital Transformation & Strategy Advisor at KBC), Sabine Everaet (CIO at Coca-Cola EMEA), Sophie Leconte (CEO at Everis Benelux) and Iris Roelens (Junior Associate at McKinsey & Company). The success of this event keeps growing each year, with almost 300 tickets sold for the last edition and lavish praise by attendees, speakers and sponsors.

As the rise of women in the technology sector increases, we are determined to keep contributing to this change and

inspiring Leuven’s students during this gala evening.
