Introducing “Workshop Wednesdays”

We have been discussing this for quite a while now and finally are getting it off the ground. Wierdly we can only pronounce it with a games programme style delivery – its …. “Workshop Wednesdays!” (sounding like captain cavemen the cartoon character).

So the plan is – that it will take place once every other week in the new Desklodge House on the 3rd floor from 6 – 9pm.

There are two large areas for coworking/peer-supported learning in a very similar remit to that of Codehub events. There are also a series of rooms in which we can do training shared projects or talks, these can host from 6 to 16 people and we are open to people contacting us if you wish to run something. The idea is that we may have one group learning a CRM such as Salesforce, for example, another running a UX group, then a python group, etc. The overall theme will be about collaborations and its mainly for mixed groups but some may be women only as its a WTHub initiative and we are aware that many women learn better in women-only environments.

We are looking for sponsor companies to support us with pizzas and drinks in return for an opportunity to present and commnicate either as an engagement or a recruitment piece. Women’s Tech Hub runs a no recruiter (other than an internal sponsor recruiter as noted above) and a strict social media policy which you can find in our Code of Conduct, the meetup is open to everyone (yes that includes men) so please join up and sign up if you want to come along.
