Event description

Description

Girls in Tech is a global non-profit organization focused on the engagement, education, and empowerment of women in technology. Founded in 2007, our organisation has grown from San Francisco to more than 65 chapters located in North America, Europe, Asia, The Middle East, Africa, and South America.


Our London chapter, Girls in Tech London, would like to invite you to a relaunch event taking place at the BlackRock office in London on the 28th November, at 6:30pm.


Join us for a panel discussion on Entrepreneurship vs Intrapreneurship and an opportunity to network with the Girls in Tech community over drinks and nibbles!


Our panelists are leading professionals in their field - they will talk about their experiences and career decisions - you will be given the opportunity to ask your most burning questions!
