Here at WTHub ~ Bristol we want to say Thank-You to all the people who have supported us in our start-up year, especially the Desklodge team of Thanh, Jamie and Sam, who have generously hosted numerous F3Fridays ~ see here to get an idea of the outcomes of our weekly sessions.
Serrie and I really enjoyed our first Bristech annual conference, especially the thoughtful conversations we had with such a range of people – from individual women to companies interested in our ideas on practical ways to increase the number of women working with them. We felt very welcome and are delighted with the positive feedback and the number of people wanting to keep in touch ~ we were handing out halloween sweets and WTHub coasters to people who visited our stall but many were stopping by to chat even without bribery.
We have been working with KETL as you may be aware from our previous blog and now they have just announced their offering of free training sessions with desklodge support – Brilliant News!!
They are looking to promote women back in but we’re sure they are happy for women wanting to move careers to come along and see if it interests them (personally we are also a bit tempted!) Continue reading “Fancy trying out for a career in Data? KETL can help”
KETL is a data management and integration consultancy with a great ethos that is working with WTH ~ Bristol to explore ways to improve the diversity of their workforce.
Helen Woodcock, KETL’s Marketing and Business development manager, has been a great supporter of the WTH during our start up period and Ian Cray their MD is also fully behind the initiatives we are putting in place. It’s great to have such positive support for our ideas.
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.
