WOMEN IN TECH: BREAKING BARRIERS

Evening Panel Event celebrating Ada Lovelace Day with Women in STEM at the BBC

Ada Lovelace - a 19th century English mathematician and pioneer of women in STEM - is credited with having published the first computer algorithm. Yet many of us have never heard her name - nor the names of many other women who made remarkable contributions to technology.

We know that it's difficult for women to break through the barriers in STEM and other industries that are heavily male-dominated. Tonight we ask the question why that is. Why aren't more women attracted to these industries and are making them their chosen vocations? And those who do, how do they not just survive but thrive alongside their male peers? What advice is there for women who are keen to set their aspirations on professions that are traditionally notoriously male-dominated?

These and other questions will be the topic of our conversation with male and female leaders in technology on a panel moderated by Voice At The Table's CEO Rina Goldenberg Lynch.

Expect stimulating conversation, drinks, nibbles and an evening of practical tips and inspiration.

We hope you join us and the women in STEM of the BBC who are generously hosting this event.

LIMITED CAPACITY, ALLOCATED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS
