A Big Happy New Year to you all and a round-up of all the great things we’ve been up to this year!
Tech³Shed Careers Fairs
We ran two super-inclusive careers fairs and would like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for their support with our Tech³Shed incentive. These were all about having a truly engaged and inclusive place for companies to come and meet not only women looking for work but those wanting to know more about a career in Tech. Thanks to our sponsors:
- BUD systems
- Deloitte Digital
- Jump Trading
- Lloyds Banking Group
- Scott Logic
- Tech Talent Academy
- The Growth Hub
- Women in Cyber Academy
- Xavier Analytics
Women: we moved our Free Free Fridays to be much more Career support based, helping, as much as we could support those members of ours who were looking to move, return or change careers. Through this, we have managed to see many of our members get great new jobs and/or careers.
We Started our Workshop Wednesdays to host Workshops and peer to peer-supported learning and added an option to sponsor them and engage /run workshops. We have also partnered with our great Pals at Codehub bristol which mixes it up a bit – We’d like to say a massive thanks to both Desklodge and our supportive members for running the workshops. Our sponsors to date:
We will announce this years sponsors as they come – if you want to support these then please see our Workshops Page here.
