New partners and collaborations

ADLIB & Women’s Tech Hub Partnership announced

We’re really pleased to announce that we have agreed on a partnership with ADLIB . While we are aware that this appears to be at odds with our ‘no recruiter’ Code of conduct, we are also aware that our main aim is to get women into the industry. Our partnership was based on the fact that we know that ADLIB has the best reputation in the area for great treatment towards candidates. They, in turn, are aware of the fact that collaboration with Women’s Tech Hub further emphasizes their belief in diversity and equality in the tech industry. The partnership is with our sister company Women’s Tech Jobs, which attends and gives careers support on our weekly meetings (and at any other time). We believe that with the support of a well-founded company like ADLIB we will improve on our current success without going against our core principles of putting our members first. They are looking for someone to work for them with us so if you are wanting a job as a Diversity and Inclusion Recruiter please apply here.

Maiden Film

Change of Plans:

Bristol GGD is with now dining with Graphcore on the 27th.

Simpleweb‌ & WTHub hacknight on March 7th Simpleweb Challenge: Hack into Light! is currently postponed so we have something else to offer instead!

A screening of Maiden + Satellite Q&A with Tracy Edwards in celebration of International Women’s Day. It is being screened at the Little Theatre, Bath on Thursday 7 March at 18.00.

Synopsis:To celebrate International Women’s Day, join us for a Live Q&A with Tracy Edwards, the skipper of Maiden. The Q&A will be broadcast live across the UK and Ireland via satellite.

Maiden tells the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989. 

Tracy’s dream met opposition on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it; the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure; potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew, she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.”
