BCSWomen Scotland

Sharon Moore

BCSWomen is now active in Scotland too.

We run a variety of events, and although most of these have been in Edinburgh and Glasgow we are now planning to travel a little further afield.
Topics that we have covered include how to get started with mentoring, the importance of networking, the myths about confidence, and understanding blockchain (with lego!).  We’ve been energised by, and learned from, a number of role models including CEOs, entrepreneurs, and even an ultra-marathon runner.

If you want to connect with BCSWomen Scotland then one of the easiest ways in which to do that is to join our LinkedIn subgroup.

We’re always eager to hear your ideas for events that would help you succeed, and would be delighted if you wished to speak or run an event too.  Please contact sharon.moore@bcs.org or post in LinkedIn.
