An interesting event popped up on social media today and caught our eye, and not just because we have been talking with a few people here in Bristol about how round table discussions can be used to shift things along, if you have enough people involved who are open to conversations about increasing diversity AND are in positions of responsibility in organisations.
We’ve been looking around at reasons why women sometimes give up and leave rather than stay in their work – and we came across an impressive webinar from Kona Coaching. They’re a group of chartered occupational psychologists who say they are on a mission to help people thrive in their working lives.
“Workforce diversity is a business imperative – as illustrated by the success of companies with an effective gender-balance.”
This line stood out for us from the new ‘Bristol Creative Tech Manifesto 2016’, a collaboration between our friends at TechSPARK and Bristol Media, who have crowdsourced the content from local creative and tech companies.
When we first started scoping out the myriad of things that our Women’s Tech Hub could offer we realised we can’t do everything ourselves and it makes much more sense to find people and organisations that offer the range of services that women need.
We wrote only a week ago about how nice it is to find friendly spaces to work in and now here at Women’s Tech Hub ~Bristol we can let you in on our latest news – we are very pleased to announce that Desklodge Bristol are offering free hot-desking to twenty of our members!
