Salt Sessions with Sapient: Women in Tech
Thu 11 May 2017, 18:00 – 21:30 BST
Join us for our first Salt Session hosted by Sapient on Women in Tech – an event created for the digital industry to reflect on and discuss equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace.
There has been a big movement towards equality in the work place but the tech industry is still lagging, with the industry still being very much percieved as a 'boys club'. Our speakers will explore how employers and employees can stimulate organic change and drive equality of women in tech forward. With a range of diverse backgrounds, the speakers will draw on their experience and discuss what they believe can help shape the industry to level the playing field.
