Celebrating women in STEM fields: Find out what a career in technology has to offer

Co-hosted by the Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) and Computer Science (CSS) Societies this day-long conference is a celebration of women working in, or aspiring to, one of the world’s fastest growing industries. 

Everyone is welcome – tech enthusiasts, programmers and non-programmers, coders and non-coders, of any gender and from all backgrounds and interests. We will be welcoming speakers from a wide range of disciplines to deliver inspirational keynote addresses. This year's Conference will place great emphasis on inspirational ‘TED’-style talks delivered by our sponsors and partners, along with several workshops and networking opportunities throughout the day.

Talks will provide a fascinating insight into various areas of life outside the University, for example what it is like to be part of a graduate scheme, becoming an entrepreneur, climbing the ladder in academia, and gaining a good work-life balance. Moreover the event will present a well-rounded view of a range of different career paths for women in technology.

The Conference is brought to you by EY in partnership with FDM , with additional sponsorship from Goldman Sachs, Accenture, IBM and other companies to be announced soon.

By signing up and attending the Conference you will be entered in a raffle. Prizes will range from Amazon vouchers, techy gadgets* and the chance to win an insight day at one of our sponsor companies**! 

Lunch and refreshments will be provided thanks to the support of our sponsors who will also be in attendance.
