The digital technology sector is growing at twice the rate of any other sector in the UK, with plenty of investment and job opportunities pouring in year after year. While only 17% of UK tech talent is female, it is estimated that if women filled the current IT skills shortages, the UK economy would profit from an additional £2.6bn annually.
In this intimate networking breakfast event for 30 management-level in-house recruitment and HR professionals, we will address the lack of gender diversity in tech. Our specialist speakers will explore a plethora of ways to attract more women to the tech space, while also nurturing and progressing the careers of those already in the profession.
We will also take part in intimate roundtable discussions with like-minded peers, sharing challenges and tips on encouraging more women to join the UK’s most dynamic sector.
What’s being discussed:
- Identifying, encouraging & supporting women in tech
- Improving Retention
- Evaluating current processes to boost applications and hiring
- Candidate attraction/ Employee Benefits/ Building a talent pool/ Efficient onboarding
- What female tech professionals are looking for in a job
- The latest research – Diversity and Inclusion, Skills in Demand
- … and much more
