This resulted in different network events targeting both students and practitioners in the IT industry around Örebro. One such event was hosted at the University together with the #addher network during fall 2018. Over the years, Tanja held workshops for the Informatics staff in gender mainstreaming. In the autumn of 2021, she held an open seminar entitled "Gender equality in the IT industry and Business" for all informatics students. The seminar was held available in hybrid form.
