What Women Want 2.0 Report Launch by What Women Want 2.0

Shami Chakrabarti CBE and the What Women Want 2.0 team invite you to Parliament to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018 at the launch of the What Women Want 2.0 report.

In 1996, the What Women Want survey posed a simple question to women across the country: What Do You Want? 10,000 women, from all walks of life, responded to the call. They said they wanted more support for childcare; freedom from stereotypes; social equality and environmental sustainability and much more. What Women Want changed the political landscape: it changed the policy agenda, the public debate and our equalities legislation.

Twenty years on, we’re doing it again. We’ve collected answers from self-identifying women across the UK, to see what’s changed, and what hasn’t. Please join us in Parliament to launch this important report.

When: Wednesday 7th March 2018
Where: Attlee Suite, Portcullis House, 1 Parliament Street, Westminster, London SW1A 2JR

Agenda

Diversity in Tech: actions and toolkit

Diversity in Tech: actions and toolkit

Tech is becoming increasingly more prevalent in our lives. Tech companies are driving changes in how we work, communicate and even travel. The responsibility and influencing power that the people creating this technology have is getting large for any single demographic to have full control.

Unfortunately, the lack of diversity in tech is one code the industry has been slow to crack, and despite the numerous "diversity programs" flourishing in tech companies, there aren't many concrete goals and actions being defined, resulting in poor progress.

French Tech London and Circle, have the pleasure to invite you to "Diversity in Tech: actions and toolkit", gathering brilliant speakers to help you define your "diversity goals" and to give you the tools to achieve them.

There has been a lack of women in the UK technology industry for more than two decades now. As the industry grows in importance to the UK economy, the percentage of women working in the tech sector has remained relatively constant, with women accounting for just 17% of tech jobs overall. The underrepresentation of women in the UK technology industry is a core issue, and addressing the gender gap is critical to long-term success.

Rise Up - Inspiring Stories

Rise Up - Inspiring Stories

Rise Up is back!

Following the success of our inaugural event in Manchester earlier this year, we are very pleased to announce that the Rise Up will be coming to London on Thurs 23rd November and we would like to personally invite you along.

Rise Up was created by two women in the Barclays Digital Creative team who wanted to draw attention to the huge contribution that women are making to digital innovation and technology. As with many other industries, tech companies are dominated by male leaders where all too often, female voices can be lost or drowned out amongst the celebrated successes of their male colleagues. This event aims to give women in tech a platform to tell their stories and to speak on a topic they are passionate about; the hope is that their voices will inspire more women to take up a career in technology and stride forward into leadership roles of their own. 

We had so much amazing feedback following our last event so wanted to build on the Inspiring Stories theme to invite you to hear from another group of funny, feisty, female speakers, all of whom have a lot to share.

The second event focusses on inspiring stories from 3 women in tech and digital with very different backgrounds; taking us through the importance of promoting tech and careers in digital to entry level girls to the valued difference female leaders are making to our male dominated industry. We would also like to provide you with an opportunity to share your own stories, meet new people and have fun!

FAQs

 

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

It is best to take public transport to King's Cross and walk around the back until you come to the main entrance of Central Saint Martins (CSM) where the many little water fountains are. Go to Reception where you will be asked to show ID and fill out a visitor registration card. It is a converted train station so follow the directions here to the pods:

  • From reception proceed to the ticket gates where the guard will look at your card and let you in.
  • Take the stairs in front of you on the right, go up one floor, turn left enter where it says (1) f & C, H & D, A.
  • Enter glass doors To Blocks H & D and through to Block A.
  • Go along long corridor with study areas on your right all the way to the end until you hit SU COFFEE BAR but don't go in there.
  • Enter wooden door on your right To Block A. Now you are in the library. Enter through the glass book security panels.
  • Go straight, keep the stairs on your left. The pods are in the far corner on your right.

SPECIAL THANK YOU NOTE

Silvia Xin for supporting ilona.tech by providing a cozy and welcoming event space at Central Saint Martins (CSM). Silvia researches intervention via social media on bringing women into technology as part of her Masters course.
