About

The digital technology sector is growing at twice the rate of any other sector in the UK, with plenty of investment and job opportunities pouring in year after year. While only 17% of UK tech talent is female, it is estimated that if women filled the current IT skills shortages, the UK economy would profit from an additional £2.6bn annually.

In this intimate networking breakfast event for 30 management-level in-house recruitment and HR professionals, we will address the lack gender diversity in tech. Our specialist speakers will explore a plethora of ways to attract more women to the tech space, while also nurturing and progressing the careers of those already in the profession.

We will also take part in intimate roundtable discussions with like-minded peers, sharing challenges and tips on encouraging more women to join the UK’s most exciting industry.

What’s being discussed?
  • The social and economic benefits of employing more women in tech
  • What female tech professionals are looking for in a job
  • How to encourage more female role models in tech
  • Educating young girls about a career in tech
  • Tackling unconscious bias and the gender wage gap in tech
  • … and much more
