To kick off Barclays virtual events at the Ada Scotland Festival 2022, Barclays Women in Technology network are hosting an informal chat with one of our senior leaders in Glasgow. This session will provide an opportunity to hear from Sarah Rashid – Director of Strategic Regulatory Change Private Bank and sponsor of our Women in Technology Network. During this session Sarah will discuss her career journey so far, the transition from coming out of university with a degree in Computing Science to working as a PMO in Regulatory Change. She will share some of the decisions she has made to get to this point in her career, things she has enjoyed and the challenges she has faced. Sarah will also touch upon her personal interest in Women in Tech, and any advice she has for women entering into a tech career.
Sarah has recently taken up the role of sponsor for Women in Technology Scotland. She will work with the committee to identify focus areas and opportunities to deliver as part of our agenda.

In her role she is accountable for partnering with the Private Bank business, and colleagues in COO to define and transform our approach to regulatory change.
