Microsoft is hosting a forum this month targeted at women in IT. The forum, called Geek Girls will be held at the World Trade Centre on March 9th and will play host to five female IT professionals.

The forum, held alongside Tech-Ed Middle East will allow participants to interact with the IT professionals as well as Microsoft Executives who will share insights on how to create a sustainable work and life balance.

Career development strategies for Women in IT will also be one of the key topics at the forum.

IT is often perceived as a male dominated industry, according to Microsoft, and the company is trying to change that perception as more and more women join the workforce.

Microsoft is actively trying to change business policy to make IT an attractive choice for women. The Geek Girls forum will be held between 12.45 and 2pm at the Dubai Rooms on Level one of the Dubai World Trade Centre.
