Tech3Shed

Tech³Shed

Tech3Shed returns for its second outing at this year’s’ Bristol Technology Festival. It’s super-inclusive and exists to help companies get past the barriers to recruit diverse tech teams into industry. So rather than repeating a line like “but no women ever apply” come, be at the fair, speak to the women and other potential employees that don’t look like your standard ‘superstar’ dev and find out why. The Tech3Shed fair is about engagement and showing that you are open to all rather than just ticking a ‘diversity’ checkbox.
For anyone wanting to come & meet companies whether you are currently skilled and looking, returning after a career break or simply tech-curious then this is the Fair for you. We promise you will NOT be ignored due to not looking like or being ‘BOB’ .. and we are happy to introduce you to companies that you are interested in. You are all welcome to come for FREE .. signup here on Eventbrite

So sign up now if you are looking for a new role or mail us at info@wthub.org if you are a company wanting to sponsor and truly support diversity in Tech.
