Event description

Description

Structur3dpeople is extremely excited to be working with all four Universities in the Bristol region - University of Bristol, University of Bath, University of the West of England (UWE) and Bath Spa University, bringing together female students to talk about developing a career in tech, leadership or as a founder.

Tech is changing industries and sectors

As we see technology advancing in every part of our lives, it is also disrupting every industry and sector. We are seeing more startups and companies build products and services to make our lives easier. Get inspired by some female founders who will discuss how they're using tech to disrupt and impact.

A career where you can lead successfully

All industries are looking to attract more female talent into their senior leadership teams. Even as a founder you need great leadership skills to manage teams when your Startup grows. Developing your skills early on, gives you a great head start and this event will provide you with an insight into the pathways you can take to become an effective leader.

Role Models show you the way

We will hear from a panel of amazing women who have successfully navigated their careers. How did they get there? What were their challenges? What’s the best advice they can give you? They want to share their experiences past and present to help you reach your aspirations and goals, no matter which direction you choose.

Panellists include:


  • Zara Nanu, CEO and Co-Founder GapSquare
  • Becky Sage, CEO Interactive Scientific
  • Sofy Large, Senior Digital Manager, EE
  • Marina Traversari, Oracle StartupCloud Accelerator Programme Manager
  • Maisy Ward, Undergraduate Bath Business School, Bath Spa University


5.45 to 6.15pm - Registration

6.15 to 7.45pm - Panel Discussion and Q&A

7.45 to 8.30pm - Networking and Drinks

Mentors help to guide you in your career

Structur3dpeople has been working with senior business leaders developing the skills of women, preparing them for the world of work. All female students attending this event will receive a FREE mentoring session with a Senior Executive from industry.
