Whats the problem with …

Woman being interviewed


We’ve been having talks with women working in tech over the years and discussing the issues they face, we’ve decided that its worth having a wider conversation to help people have awareness of some of them. To start off we are tackling the Recruitment process both internal recruitment processes and external recruitment companies appear to have or are blockers for our women. We were really first made aware of this at our tech3shed recruitment fair where we were talking to the managers/CTO’s/CEO’s who attended and were bemused by how astonished they were by the number of high-quality female candidates they were seeing. Apparently they were not seeing them at all when they were recruiting, and when we spoke to the women it wasn’t like they hadn’t been applying. So the question for you all is – what’s actually blocking them? ……. We don’t have all the answers but check out this piece to start off your thinking on the interview process for those that do get that far.
