The conference was a resounding success, featuring valuable insights from talented tech women and the industry’s brightest minds, said a press release.

The event celebrated diversity by inviting not only professionals, but also students from various backgrounds, the transgender community and the differently abled, to motivate them to embrace their aspirations, ambitions, dreams, and share them with others.

This years’ IWD theme was about encouraging each other to be their authentic selves, and to break stereotypes. The conference explored what it means to be audaciously bold, to walk through the world with courage and confidence.

The conference kicked of with a keynote by Ali Naqi Rizvi, Co-Manager, Google Developers Group (GDG), who explained the background of GDG Islamabad, introduced the team, and took a trip down memory lane.

S&P Global has a very diverse product portfolio and to accelerate progress and power the markets of the future, we strive towards building empowered and inclusive teams that, in turn, build these diverse product lines,” said Usman Nazir.
