W-Tech will connect the most well known technology employers with women working in, or who are interested in working in, the IT profession. It will be ‘the’ networking event of 2009 for everyone wanting to learn out more about women working in, achieving in and staying in the IT workforce.
Meet professionals from across the IT industry and find out about training programmes, get advice on personal and career development and hear about the latest technology trends. W-Tech is brought to you through a partnership between BCS and womenintechnology.co.uk in their common goal of building a profession that is good for women and better for all.
The event runs all day from 11:00 until 21:30. There are FREE workshops and seminars running between 12:00 until 18:00 followed by an evening networking event with a fantastic panel of successful women from the IT profession who will share their experience of what it takes to reach the top. W-Tech will close with a drinks reception with great networking opportunities that will end at 21:30.
People are welcome to attend all day, for part of the day or for the evening event - you just need to sign up online!
The day's workshop and seminar programme will include:
Personal and career development sessions including creating your own brand, political savvy and how to behave in all male teams.
