Highlights from our women in tech events

On Monday 6 March, we held two events at the Science Museum in conjunction with the launch of our 'Women in tech: time to close the gender gap' report.

In the afternoon 80 girls aged 14 to 16 representing 8 different schools, and a group of air cadets, enjoyed an inspiring afternoon in the Engineer Your Future gallery at the Science Museum. With a mixture of role model speakers and a workshop where the girls worked in teams on a task requiring coding, soldering, design and more, the event really changed perceptions of what a career in tech could be like.  Watch our short video to find out more.

Later in the day, over 100 business leaders and representatives from the government and education sectors gathered together to hear the findings from our research and discuss how we can work together to do more faster to address the gender gap in technology careers. You can view the highlights of the discussion on this graphic.

Our thanks go to our diversity partners everywoman and CodeFirst: Girls for their contribution to both these events.
