WeAreTechWomen

Welcome to our section dedicated to women working in Technology.  This section contains IT related news, inspirational stories, job opportunities, IT related events and most importantly visibility of organisations who are actively seeking technologists to give back and help future generations.

We are acutely aware that there is still a shortage of women in technology and that young girls in schools are not choosing IT / Technology as a career.  We are also aware that there are not enough female technologists operating a senior or board level, we would like that to change.   Our contribution to that change is by helping to raise the visibility of the individuals, organisations and charities who dedicate themselves to the progression of women in IT everyday. We hope you enjoy this new feature section and if we have missed anything or if there is anything you would like to see, please let us know – contact [email protected].
