sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in technology
We are delighted to bring to you the inaugural Women IT Summit London, taking place on 30th June 2020 at ETC Venues County Hall.
Women make up just 22% of the STEM workforce in the UK and female professionals face the pressures of fighting twice as hard to achieve progression. Furthermore, we know that diverse thinking positively impacts business however, industry statistics remain dishearteningly low with a large portion of the population uninspired to take-up careers in tech and minority groups feeling undervalued in tech positions.
In order to redress the balance, it’s imperative that we encourage female professionals to identify allies and champions that will value, support and encourage growth and that we inspire a new generation to enter the fast-growing technology industry.
Brought to you by Information Age and DiversityQ, this year’s summit will facilitate knowledge sharing and address challenges highlighted by IT professionals regarding their roles, company culture and flexibility, as well as concerns regarding talent, recruitment and retention. The event promotes a future of inclusivity and opportunity for all and will provide leaders with actionable tips and opportunities for collaboration that will focus on changing industry statistics.
