Women in Tech: Break Stereotypes, Accelerate Innovation

 

When you think about working in “tech”, what do you imagine? Quite possibly computers, coding, robots, artificial intelligence … and men?

With this series we aim to challenge these stereotypes by demonstrating the broad range of careers and skills that fall under the category of “tech”, as well as the diverse range of people who work within tech, especially women. 

Join us for a conversation with 3 highly skilled and experienced women, who have carved out their space working in tech. We will hear about the journey they took to find themselves in their current role, the barriers they overcame, and what opportunities they see opening up within the industry.

This event will open up the conversation about what it takes to be a woman in tech, supportive networks and tools and professional development and employment opportunities.

We hope you will join us!

This event is FREE to attend, please RSVP below.
