Roundtable – Women in tech: How can we promote further diversity in the sector?

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This year marks the centenary of (some) women getting the right to vote. 2018 is also the Year of Engineering, with a year-long campaign to tackle the engineering skills gap. Just 17% of those working in technology in the UK are female and only 7% of students taking computer science A-level courses are girls.

This roundtable event, chaired by Pictfor Co-Chair Vicky Ford MP, will explore barriers and challenges women in tech face and solutions to ensure a diverse and vibrant tech sector.

This event will cover the following topics:

  • Promoting diversity in the tech sector
  • Ensuring everyone benefits from emerging tech
  • Barriers to entry, workplace culture and equal pay
  • Education and the talent pipeline
  • Social media etiquette
  • Best practice in industry and regulatory initiatives

This is a members only event
