Would you like to be part of a drive to inspire more females into technology, but you’re not sure how to step forward as a role model?
As an industry, IT is crying out for more “real life” female role models at all levels, so WeAreTheCity and Morgan Stanley are partnering for a fourth consecutive year and would like to invite you to an innovative event where you can learn how to become one.
In a speed networking style event format, not-for-profit organisations, who are supporting the growth of women entering the technology industry, will share what opportunities are available to you and how you can get involved. They will provide advice and resources on how you can take action in your own communities.
In addition, hear from technology role model Maggie Philbin, CEO of TeenTech. Maggie is a highly respected technology reporter, and TV and radio host. Best known for inspiring millions, via ‘Tomorrow’s World’, she will share her own tips and advice on the traits of a good role model.
The technology industry is full of potential role models, yet many women believe they have to be a “super woman” to deserve the title of “role model”. Whether you feel comfortable speaking at a school assembly, running an after-school club, sharing expertise via Skype or mentoring a fellow female technologist, we hope to offer something for all aspiring role models at this event.
