Celebrate digital talent and leaders


Join us for the fifth annual RightBrains awards event, connect with peers and learn from inspiring keynote speakers. This year’s event will take place on November 16 at Deloitte’s offices in Rotterdam. At 13:30 our host Patrick Steemers, partner TMT at Deloitte, will take the stage to welcome us. At 16:30 the nominees for the Digital Diversity Leadership and Digital Talent awards will join us on stage, followed by the winner announcements. At the end the day we will meet and mingle with drinks and snacks.

Reinventing leadership
This year’s theme is reinventing leadership. Digital transformation necessitates a high degree of change management as well as new strategies, skills and behaviours. To achieve success in the digital age, companies need to revisit and rethink the concept of leadership. During this event we will hear from expert leaders about the digital revolution and how it is changing leadership.

The objective of this event is to be inspired, learn and connect with like-minded women working at different stages in their careers. A great opportunity for 3rd and 4th year Bachelor and Master students and those considering a career switch to learn more about careers in digital technology.
