Özlem Güsar, the founder of OGGUSTO, stated about the conference, “Empowering women and making them shine is a responsibility that falls on all of us. It is a proven fact that women are lagging behind socially and economically or being ignored. To reverse this situation, we are organizing the IŞILDAYANLAR Conference to create awareness and consciousness about gender equality. Instead of repeating problems, we aim to showcase solutions, change minds and behaviors, inspire and instill confidence in women, and encourage brands to support this cause. This year, we will also share a research conducted specifically on this topic by Zenna.”

She added, “In the first conference held in May 2022, we created a wave of transformation with nearly 50 speakers, over 600 invited guests, and more than 10,000 live stream viewers. This year, we are aiming even higher.”

IŞILDAYANLAR is Creating Social Impact while Preserving the Environment

To enhance the impact of the IŞILDAYANLAR Conference, Wtech will provide Robotic Process Automation Training to 20 young women after the conference. The income from transforming a valuable artwork designed by artist Mehmet Sinan Kuran into scarves and selling them will be donated to the Yeniden Biz Vakfı. To make the IŞILDAYANLAR Conference carbon-neutral this year, a designated amount will be donated to TEMA’s 100th Year Republic Forest.

Last year, 20 young women received Robotic Process Automation Training from Wtech. Artist Ali Atmaca’s Red Painting artwork was produced as silk scarves by Vakko, and the income was donated to the IŞILDAYANLAR Fund created in collaboration with KAGİDER. Additionally, 60 trees were planted and 40 dolphins were adopted to offset the emissions generated by the conference’s organization last year.
