Tackling the Technology Gender Gap Together

Following on from the success of the Tackling the Technology Gender Gap Together event in November, Skills Development Scotland and their partners in the Digital Skills Group, would like to invite you to attend their next event.
The theme of Tackling the Technology Gender Gap Together 2017 is to share good practice, and for you to take away new ideas and approaches to encouraging more women into technology.
We are running a ‘hub’ event in Inverness the day after the event in Glasgow. For details about the Glasgow event click here. Our hub event will focus specifically on how to attract and retain women in the technology workplace and onto digital technology related courses at College and University. You will have the opportunity to hear from speakers from the Glasgow event as well as a taking part in a round table discussion to share best practice and network with businesses from across the North of Scotland .
