Celebrating the women in technology

 

Join us on Saturday 6 February for the first Women in Technology Conference. Co-hosted by the University’s Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) and Computer Science Societies (CSS), this day-long conference will be 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, women and men from all backgrounds and interests. We will be welcoming speakers from academia and other disciplines to give inspirational talks in a “TED” style manner. There will also be the opportunity to network and take part in interactive workshops delivered by our sponsors and partners.

This day will be a celebration of women and we are looking forward to hearing all about the career choices women in technology have taken, as well as learn from their wide breadth of expertise within the tech industry.

Talks will provide attendees with fascinating insight into various areas of life outside of 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 PwC in partnership with the British Computing Society and the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, with additional sponsorship from QA Consulting (formerly known as NETbuilder), Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other companies to be announced soon.

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