New Chapter Launches – Feb 2024

Women in Blockchain Talks is fostering diversity and inclusion in Web3 by continuing to expand their network to global and regional chapters. In 2022, WiBT launched different global chapters around the world in Warsaw, Berlin, Barcelona and Manchester, UK; originally, starting with Dubai in 2021 .

In 2024 we decided to focus on supporting more UK regions rather than focusing mainly on London.

Launching WiBT in Brighton: Another Milestone

Brighton is not only famous for its pebble beaches, vibrant arts scene and diverse culture. But it’s also gaining recognition for its growing technology hub.

The launch event in Brighton was a super success, bringing together individuals from all walks of life – business, students, graduates, and professionals – passionate about blockchain and emerging technologies.

Some of the key takeaways from the event were:

  1. The importance of social impact and wage recognition in different parts of the emerging world such as South Asia as we the Western world continue to rely more on emerging tech
  1. Being self-aware about who is in the room in order to promote diversity from all areas. Who can you invite? Especially women!
  1. Acknowledging that with tech disruption and growth comes job displacement, so, the importance of upskilling and community for both students and local businesses.

WiBT Brighton is led by Emily Ward, ACIM CMktr, along with co-leaders Rose Tighe and Kornel Kot. These leaders will drive the chapter’s activities, creating valuable opportunities for knowledge exchange and networking in the Brighton area.

Expansion to The Midlands - Birmingham: A New Chapter

The recent launch of our new chapter in Birmingham marks a significant milestone for WiBT. Birmingham, known for its vibrant tech content and the second largest city in the UK, in the heart of the magnificent Midlands area, is an ideal location for WiBT to expand its reach and impact.

The launch event was held at the beautiful “Art.Quater, a beautiful workspace in Central Birmingham. We had a small but engaged crowd, who were able to ask questions relevant to their industries such as Property, Law and Catering.

Interestingly, one of the attendees had written her dissertation around crypto and web3 citing Lavinia’s case Osbourne v Persons Unknown . She had not realised she was attending the event of the actual“Osborne” involved.

It goes to show that the work that WIBT and Lavinia are doing today is impactful and far-reaching in creating a more equitable tech world and society.

Will you support us?

We are looking for a Global Chapter leader and, ideally, 2 x Co-leads for Birmingham. Could this be you?
