Diversity, inclusion and education
Tuesday 14 November
Technology has changed the way we live in a plethora of ways - some subtle, others less so. From the way we communicate to the way we shop, everything has become instant, accessible, and connected. Yet, for all of technology’s advancements, recruitment has changed little in decades, leaving many feeling excluded from the opportunities technology can offer.
The number of women executives is often regarded as an organisation’s commitment to diversity, but for every executive there must be hundreds of women engineers, technicians, and analysts to support, strengthen and develop the apps, webpages and devices we all use every day. To end the ongoing skills shortage, organisations will need to not only refine their hiring processes and expand their recruitment pools but tackle the issue at its core. Industry and academia must work together to foster a future generation of diverse experts and leaders in STEM.
Join us on Tuesday 14 November in London to get unrivalled access to exclusive keynote, panel, thinktank, deep-dive, and networking sessions, all hosted by a diverse range of expert speakers.
