Diversity in Tech 2017 June 24th

Here’s a chance to get involved with WTH by sponsoring our first annual summer conference on Diversity in Tech.

Tickets for individuals are on sale (CLICK HERE) nb if you need a creche space or want to book a child into the code club please email us on

DIVERSITY? on Sat.24th June at Watershed will bring together a wide range of Bristol/SouthWest people who are keen to increase diversity in tech. There is widespread agreement that women and people from BAME communities are woefully under-represented in our local tech community, and we’d like to find out more about what interventions are needed to improve the current situation.

The day will run from 10-4.30 and is themed around Recruitment, Retention and Resilience.

  • good workplace practice about how to recruit and retain people in tech.
  • how to support employees to be resilient in a changing work environment.

As ever we will focus on practical actions, and want to curate panels of people who are trying to change things already ~ suggestions of inspirational people and projects welcome! SO come along and connect, talk to us and to others, find out more about local initiatives from tech companies who are trying to change.

Sign ups are open (CLICK HERE) tickets are reasonably priced at £20+costs, and we will be offering some creche facilities for those who could otherwise not attend. Email to offer support/sponsorship, express an interest and stay updated. You can download the DiversityJune2017 flyer
