Women’s Tech Hub has been running for a couple of years now, and we’ve had lots of conversations with lots of people including freelancers, tech companies large and small, women who want to work in tech. We’ve spent a lot of time talking, supporting and thinking and now want to share just some of the conclusions we have come to at our Women’s Tech Hub Spring Social & Update.
On Wednesday 11th April we invite you to come and hear more about Women’s Tech Hub, what we have done so far, and what we have planned for 2018 and beyond to support large and small enterprises.
We’ve been working with a range of companies to develop products that help with workplace and recruitment issues, and projects as diverse as Free3Fridays, Tech~Maker Mondays, Women Tech Founders and our planned conference and recruitment fair.
We’ll be at ACCU with Bloomberg
As well as our range of products and our membership scheme, we will also be presenting our shiny new website (designed by WTHub’s very own Ajara Pfannenschmidt) at the ACCU conference in Bristol, for which we have partnered with Bloomberg, a champion of diversity and inclusion in tech.
Whether you are a small or large company trying to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace, a woman looking to reboot her career, or just generally interested in finding out more about what we are doing then come along to our Spring Social, it’s free, and open to all genders.
We know that tech culture needs to change – we started exploring this process at our Diversity in Tech event last June where we talked recruitment, retention and resilience issues with people from local tech companies and now we want to share our practical solutions with a wider audience.
We need to do this together
We have always known that change means sharing what needs to be done and then acting on it, and it is not something that individuals can do alone, however much support and skills development we offer them.
We didn’t pull our ideas out of a hat. We are drawing on our considerable combined brain power and decades of experience as women in tech fields, and have decided that there really are still some fundamental steps needed to create a diverse and inclusive tech industry that welcomes and supports women back into the tech workplace.
We can’t solve it alone, we need to talk…
