Here at Womens Tech Hub ~ Bristol we believe that we need to be seen and heard to encourage more women and girls into the tech sector. We are highly committed to being present at as many events and conferences as possible, not only to ensure that industry is aware of us but also so that women who are attending events know that there will definitely be other women to talk to.
We often hear the barriers which deter women and girls from engaging in science, technology, engineering and maths are unconscious bias and a lack of diversity at board level. To celebrate the launch of Women Tech Founders, we are interviewing the female leaders involved with SETsquared Bristol to explore their career paths and views on issues faced by women in technology. Each of their stories is individual, some have a technical background, others are using technology to enable their business idea.
