Women in technology panel: Improving accessibility, participation and leadership

We are reminded regularly that many areas of ICT are facing a skills shortage, yet the percentage of women in technology is disproportionately low at all levels. The industry is diversifying and changing rapidly, yet diversity is still an issue. Our panel of successful women will share their learnings as technology entrepreneurs and leaders.

  • Supporting women to achieve their technology career aspirations: Improving female representation in the industry. How can we attract and retain a greater proportion of female technology professionals? What are challenges within ICT women face when developing a career in the sector. What can industry leaders do to facilitate change?
  • Fostering female entrepreneurs: Inspiring, mentoring, showcasing and supporting women-led growth tech companies.
