We are proud to welcome these women who are changing the game in the tech industry

Dear Data Natives,

Time is ticking, only 9 days left to secure your DN19 tickets for a discount August price! Your future self will be thanking you for it.


Women played a glorious role in the early days of tech

From WWII onwards women were involved in groundbreaking technological projects such as the foundations of modern programming language and the first general-purpose computer, the ENIAC. The software was long seen as women's work and by 1984, the number of US women in computer engineering majors was 37%.

That changed when Silicon Valley became a goldmine. Modeled to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, the male tech nerd became a hero in popular culture. Steadily, the number of women in computer engineering majors declined.

But everyone can feel times are changing...

We are proud to welcome these women who are changing the game in the tech industry at DN19:


Filipa Peleja - Senior Data Scientist, Vodafone Portugal

After getting awarded a 1st prize in an industry challenge from NOS, Peleja worked at Yahoo! research, before joining Vodafone. She also passes on her data wisdom during lectures at Neueda and faculty NOVAIMS, or during awesome conferences such as DN19.

Susan Wegner - VP Data, AI and Governance (CDO), Deutsche Telekom

Wegner is responsible for data governance, management, architecture, models and analytics. Susan brings with her more than 20 years of experience, especially in the fields of platform/software design, image processing, data analysis and AI.
"It is certainly no easy task to make a contribution to diversity within a classic male domain such as data science. Nonetheless, this year, more than 50 percent of female speakers are discussing on Data Native’s four stages."

Elena Poughia, DN Founder

Data Natives is on a mission for change, together with our diverse community. We love to connect people from all genders and backgrounds to a bigger network through our events. We write about all their achievements and we have a fabulous mix of professionals shining on our stages.

Caroline Sinders - Principal Designer & Founder at Convocation Design+Research

With her company, Sinders works on the intersections of machine learning, user research, designing for public good, and solving difficult communication problems. As a designer and researcher, she worked with Amnesty International, Intel, IBM Watson, the Wikimedia Foundation, and others.

Sophie Brüggemann - Data Analyst & Technology Consultant
at Spinnin' Records (Warner Music Group)

Brüggemann is on a mission to personalise music streaming and improve listener experiences. She is a PhD candidate at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich and specializes on the intersection of consumer research and business analytics.
Ellen Konig - Senior Data Scientist at Humanitec

Konig loves turning messy business problems into hypotheses that can be tested with experimentation, statistics and machine learning. She is establishing data science at Humanitec and TolaData by day and saving the world with her non-profit "Data Science for Social Good Berlin" by night.

So let's remember:

you are not bossy,

you are the boss!

See you in November,
