ThoughtWorks are a global software company with a base in Manchester, and they've kindly offered to sponsor our Girl Geek Dinner for June. Come along for a chance to meet other Girl Geeks in Manchester, to hear the speakers and join in the discussion, and to network and make new friends.
ThoughtWorks’ mission is to better humanity through software and we strive to build and grow a diverse workforce to help us do this. We are proud to have lots of talented female ‘ThoughtWorkers’ on board, but it is still hard to ignore the lack of senior female role models in the technology space – something that is vital to the continued growth and success of the industry. Join us to hear from a variety of female leaders in different roles across the technology space and learn about different approaches that will help you to become a successful leader.Schedule for the evening:
6.00pm - Arrival and registration
6.30pm – Jackie (ThoughtWorks Global Leadership Development) and Isabella (Senior Developer on ThoughtWorks leadership programme) share their experiences
7.15pm - Q&A/Panel Discussion with a range of women who currently work in the technology space, talking about their experiences around Leadership
8.00pm – Food, drinks and networking
For more information about Thoughtworks, visit www.thoughtworks.com. ThoughtWorks are kindly sponsoring the event and covering all the costs, meaning our ticket takings will be put towards future Girl Geeks events.
