Inspired by Accenture's BIG 2017 International Women's Day question “How far can you go?” join young women from across the UK to share their tech stories, drawing on personal experiences - both positive and challenging.
Host: Writer and presenter, Billie JD Porter (BBC, C4, Vice)
Successful applicants aged 16-27 from a range of backgrounds will workshop their ideas into talks with Accenture and ThinkNation mentors on March 1, just a few hours before presenting them in front of you, our live audience, alongside peers and industry experts that very evening.
Not only is this a really exciting event for all involved, we're also tapping into fresh, new ideas and perspectives, reaching out to give diverse voices a platform as part of IWD 2017.
Calling all young women! Aged 16-27? Want your chance to share your stories and talk on March 1? APPLY HERE!
