Equate Scotland and Women Into Tech are delighted to partner with Ada.Scot for the Ada Scotland Festival this October.
Are you interested in pursuing a career in tech? Are you already working in the sector? Have you tried to envision the ideal organisation to work for? Are you looking for tips on how to progress your career and overcome some of the barriers women face in the industry?
Then this workshop might be for you. Looking at both the opportunities and challenges for women in the tech industry, we will explore ways to build more inclusive workplaces and why this is particularly relevant and important in the tech industry. We will try to envision what our ideal organisation look like and provide you with tools and tips to build on this vision. This workshop is also an opportunity to meet with like-minded women, and find ways to navigate change in a constantly evolving workplace.
This workshop will support you to:
- Understand the barriers women may face when studying or working in tech
- Understand the importance of creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces
- Recognise non-inclusive environments or situations at work
- Envision how you want the future of work to look like
- Identify ways to enhance change and create a more inclusive tech sector
This event is for women or non-binary students or professionals interested in pursuing a career in tech. Please read our Inclusion Statement for more information: https://equatescotland.org.uk/home/inclusion-statement/
