We believe that all women everywhere should have access to a mentor, to gain knowledge and skills for personal and career development.

This launch event will bring together mentors, mentees, senior executives as well as women who are looking for guidance and support in their careers.

We want to encourage an open an honest conversation on the challenges that women face. This is a great opportunity to pick the brains of mentors and talk to women who have overcome their obstacles and are now in successful careers.

We are excited to have hosts Amazon and VMWare sponsor the evening. The format will be;

18.15 - Arrival and refreshments
19.00 - Welcome from Simone Grounsell, Client Director and Lead for Women at AWS and David Parry-Jones, VP and GM at VMWare

20.15 - Networking and drinks

21.15 - Event finishes but we will be happy to continue discussions afterwards for those who wish to stay a little longer. 

 

Who is this event for?

Women who are interested in a tech career and in need of some direction.
Women on a career break who are looking to build up skills and confidence to get back into work.
Women who are looking to move into a leadership or senior executive position.
Women looking for someone to help with guidance and support to help reach their goals.
Senior Execs / HR Directors interested in increasing diversity within their companies

 

Outcome from the event

We want to help women everywhere to develop their skills and become confident enough to not hold themselves back from anything they want to achieve. We hope our mentoring programmes provide the stepping stones that women need right now, where new connections are made and new doors will open.

At the same time, we are providing companies with access to a much wider talent pool so diversity is no longer a challenge and will ultimately bring them business success.

Women in Innovation: Changing perceptions, inspiring growth

Women in Innovation: Changing perceptions, inspiring growth

Join us for a high-impact event on how to change perceptions and inspire the growth of women in innovation

For the past 18 months, Innovate UK has been working to encourage diversity and inclusion in business innovation. We began our focus on better supporting women in innovation andthrough an awards programme identified a cohort of the most promising female innovators in the UK.

Since receiving Innovate UK backing – from funding, to advice on intellectual property and marketing – these women have gone on to achieve outstanding things.

But this group is just the tip of the iceberg. We know a lack of visible role models is a key factor in discouraging women across the UK from believing they can achieve their business ambitions. Now is the time to continue the conversation, to remove the barriers faced by female entrepreneurs and to build a community of role models who challenge the perceptions of what and who an entrepreneur can be.

Innovate UK is bringing together businesses from across the country with decision-makers from the Government, international innovation agencies, and academic professionals to hear from pioneers of innovation who are striving to change perceptions. Attendees will have the chance to discover the UK’s up-and-coming innovators and discuss how we can implement change across the sector.

The event will be held from 9.00am – 5pm at the Banking Hall in London.

We expect the event to be popular, so encourage registration as soon as possible.

 

Speakers Include:

  • Dr Ruth McKernan CBE, Chief Executive, Innovate UK
  • Jo Hutchinson, The Prince’s Trust
  • Tabitha Goldstaub, CognitionX
  • Becky Sage, Interactive Scientific Limited
  • Hilde Hukkleberg, Innovation Norway

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.
