Skills, career progression and workplace culture
This timely seminar will examine latest progress and next steps for attracting and retaining women in the technology sector, and supporting their progression.
Delegates will assess priorities for the development of a diverse talent pipeline - looking at what more might be done to address barriers to entry, encourage more women to study STEM, and improve links between education, policy and industry.
They will also consider the future role of women in the development of cutting-edge tech and driving the UK’s international competitiveness.
Following the recent publication of the first year of gender pay gap reporting, further sessions will examine issues around recruitment and career progression, as well as discussing wider challenges regarding workplace culture - including improving transparency, enhancing employer engagement, encouraging mentoring and network initiatives, and establishing conducive working environments for all.
