Spring Forward Festival 2022

Thank you for an amazing Spring Forward Festival! Thank you to all the incredible organisers who worked so hard to create their events this month.😀

Each March since 2014, we help new event organisers (and existing groups for women in business, digital, tech and creative industries) to spread the word, celebrate and inspire each other, under the Spring Forward banner. Pre-Covid we happily provided free venues, marketing, and funding to help bring their events to life. 💖

Without these amazing organisers we wouldn’t have a Festival! 🏆

Thank you so much to everyone involved in this year’s Spring Forward Festival especially our allies and sponsors: Balsamiq and Refigure Ltd 💥

Thank you to everyone who attended, spoke and supported. We hope you were inspired and felt more connected! See you next year. 🥂

Speakers were: Rebecca Sampson, Director of Operations at Hangar Games & GamesIndustryBiz Top 100 Influential Women; Emma Topping, Executive Producer at Viv Loves Film and Stephanie Prior, Marketing & Business Development Manager at Healys Law Firm and former Miss Sussex!

Spring Forward launched in 2014 and Rifa Thorpe-Tracey has led it since 2016. Running in March to coincide with International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, each year Spring Forward fills the month with events run by and/or focused on women in digital. Our ongoing mission is to encourage women to take a greater role in tech by creating a range of platforms that promote digital community events that place women at their centre.

Many thanks to our sponsors Balsamiq and Refigure Ltd
