It's no secret that the technology industry suffers diversity issues. Just walk into any mainstream technology event and you could probably count the number of women on your hand. The same goes for boardrooms, with many companies still struggling to promote women into senior roles, it's no wonder that women are feeling isolated in the IT sector.
With trying to juggle the seemingly endless ‘duties' of work life, home life, and just generally needing more hours in the day, it can feel as though the dream of reaching the ‘next step' is one that's simply too difficult to manage.
But it isn't.
Computing and CRN have collaborated to launch the Women in Tech Festival UK which will be taking place on the 17th September 2019. The event will be celebrating successful women in the IT industry, sharing personal experiences of their journeys and the challenges along the way. This one-day event will provide insight from how to create a professional you, to building and maintaining a successful team, and not to forget case studies involving cutting-edge technology.
Whether you're the ‘Next Generation', an ‘Inspirational Leader', or an ‘Innovator of Tech' this event will offer inspiration of not only how to improve yourself, but how to help others too. With a keen focus on addressing diversity throughout the day, this event is for anyone within the industry.
The event will also be hosting six Fringe Events: Zen Den, Yoga Zone, Nutrition Zone, Mindfullness Zone, Mentoring Academy and Women that Flex.
Who should attend?
The Women in Tech Festival UK is a conference welcoming all IT professionals as well as vendor, marketing and sales professionals.
