BCSWomen is there to be the inclusive support that girls and women need for their journey in tech. We are a global network; we welcome everyone to what we do, and we build empowering support and education programmes with women and girls in mind.
Some of you may have heard of Chartered Architects, Chartered Engineers and Chartered Accountants. Did you know you can be a Chartered IT Professional too? BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT is the professional body that makes that possible.
But it’s so much more than that. As a charity with a royal charter, our agenda is to lead the IT industry through its ethical challenges, to support the people who work in the industry, and to make IT good for society. BCSWomen is the group that is working towards ensuring tech is a great place for all girls and women. We’ve run events with Girl Guides, confidence workshops, explored ethics of what we do with data, and so much more.
