BBC Scotland Presents: Exploring Tech Careers in Media

What to expect:

Are you keen to learn more about the STEM career opportunities available at BBC Scotland? Do you want to widen and strengthen your professional networks? If so then this is the event for you.

Join us at BBC Scotland for a lively panel discussion involving colleagues from the BBC Tech & Product Group and Operations team. We will be hearing how they got started in their career, exploring gender balance in STEM roles and the importance of creating an inclusive workplace.

This will be followed by the opportunity to meet the teams face to face with some speed networking.

About the panel:
The panel will be led by Laura Goodwin who joined the BBC in 2018 as Innovation Correspondent. Since then she has covered a wide range of stories including the development of the covid vaccines, plans for a new space port in Shetland and a gene breakthrough in our understanding of breast and ovarian cancer. There have been some wonderful tech stories too, including the robotic whale built in Scotland for the Spy in the Ocean series, lab grown meat, and how augmented reality is helping parents prepare for cleft palate surgery on their babies. Laura also regularly presents Reporting Scotland and the Nine, and on occasion appears on Click.

– This event is open to Further and Higher Education Students, Career Changers and Up-skillers.
– This is an inclusive event with a strong focus on engaging women and under-represented gender minorities.
– Due to security rules at the building attendees must be 18 year of age or above and bring ID with them on the day.
