International Women’s Day

Breaking the Bias

International Women’s Day Events

So while we don’t do anything special for International women’s day (we essentially support International women’s year really) we do like to highlight some events that may be of interest to you. We are considering starting a rumour that all our women should get a present or something and see if that takes off – then we definitely would be celebrating!

International Women’s Day @ Future Space

This is going to be our favourite as we have Thanh our co-founder there so its obviously something to plug! (we know most of the others and they are all brilliant too – so worth turning up for)

Join us for International Women’s Day as we talk with five inspirational women from across the UWE Bristol University Enterprise Zone: Amanda Nurse, Amber Probyn, Hazel McShane, Thanh Quan-Nicholls, and Tonia Tzemanaki.

Hosted by Future Space’s Innovation Manager, Aimee Skinner, the panel will discuss what breaking the bias means. You will hear first-hand the journeys of these five incredible leaders, experts in their field and paving the way for a new generation of female entrepreneurs and innovators.

This week’s picture is this year’s International Women’s Day Theme picture “Breaking the Bias”

Workshop Wednesdays & Girl Geek Dinners: back in ‘the real’

Ocean Hydro

Workshop Wednesdays

We kept the first one relatively quiet to see how it was, turns out it was great so we’re going in for more.

This weeks special

PyLAB is cool

Steve will be (re)running the last session of the series  OOP via Python. As usual it is standalone, so don’t worry about needing to have seen previous sessions. The overall aim of the series is to dig beneath the surface of “object orientation” and explain what makes it tick and why it is effective. And in this final session he will be digging into two Design Patterns and illuminating why they are key. Also lightly cover Design Patterns in general but this isn’t a series about becoming an uber-nerd – we’re aiming for an architectural understanding. Or Oracular, depending on your preference. Our interest here is how these patterns hook into the core of object-oriented programming.

Also showing: anything basically, web development, python, flutter, data science, gaming .. anything techy goes. We’ll also have a women tech hub table for members wanting to drop in and catch up or talk careers or support. Sign up with codehub or Women’s Tech Hub.

Women’s Tech Hub in collaboration with UWE

April the 28th 2022 @ The Watershed, Central Bristol

Women’s Tech Hub is proud to present a one day conference in collaboration with UWE Bristol. Rather than it being a conference for people in the field, this is a conference for people interested in Data Science and learning what it’s about, how to transfer into the field and generally what it’s about.

We have a Date (not the romantic type!)

Tech Dating

Data Science MSc Event

As we’ve been mentioning, we are running an event in October to showcase the UWE Data Science Masters. We’ve opted for Saturday October 16, 2021 so put the date in your diaries. There’ll be a limited number for the live event (we’re just finalising the where) but we will run it as a hybrid event for those unable to make it.

UWE

A brief overview of the MSc:

Bringing together skills in data management, analytics and artificial intelligence, data scientists work with organisations to draw competitive or efficiency-related insights from their data. It’s a field that’s expected to soon make up at least a quarter of all digital jobs and has been highlighted as a major skills gap in the government’s recent industrial strategy.

Details

We’ll be putting some information together about why this may be an option for you even if you haven’t considered it as an option previously, so keep an eye out as we put this together. Also if you would like to discuss it with us then please contact us at info@wthub.org and we can provide more details and consider the affordability both time and money cost-wise.
