Description

How is new technology changing sport and what role are women playing?

What is the role of women within an industry that combines two male-dominated sectors; technology and sport? Our panel brings together some of the North West's premier women working within sports and technology to kick off our discussion.

Join us with your ideas, comments and questions.

As this is our last Women in Tech Meet-Up of the year, following the panel we'll enjoy a festivel drink or two and keep the conversation going. We hope you'll join us.
