Campfire presents ‘Big Boost Mondays’ - Women in tech

About this Event

As we celebrate International Women's Day 2020, join us on 2nd March to kick off the week with ‘Big Boost Mondays - Women in tech’. The event will explore the challenges and triumphs women face when accessing and progressing in tech careers.

Currently less than 20% of the 1.4 Million people in the E.U studying tech are women, whilst only around 15% of employees working in STEM roles in the UK are female. In terms of leadership positions, just 5% of top roles in the technology industry are held by women.

So, what is happening right now to empower women into world of tech careers and how can we reach a diverse more equal working environment?

Join us as we welcome pioneering women in tech who strive for more diverse, inclusive and successful technology workforces. Find out how to get involved with inclusive initiatives, networking working groups and how companies are providing platforms for successful careers in tech.
