What’s it all about?
Welcome to Women of Silicon Roundabout 2016.

Hear from the women at the top of Europe’s tech landscape about the barriers, challenges and opportunities faced by women in this industry. This conference will address internal company culture and structure, recruitment issues, talent retention and the traditional gender hierarchies associated with European institutions. Join us to enjoy a unique combination of content, created to investigate technical and leadership-based themes; taking the female coder to the Boardroom.

We will also investigate how you can avoid being a “Jimmy” by improving your skills portfolio to ensure career progression, personal development and ultimately success as a technology professional.

This event is for code slingers of all descriptions, looking to gain insight into the technical and practical developments in the tech industry that will help to close the gender gap and open up the industry to women and girls. Network with the women at the top of their game from enterprises and tech start-ups alike. Gain insight from senior technicians and entrepreneurs through interactive sessions, great networking and leading content.
