LONDON: WHAT SHE SAID - Girl Tech: Women Shaping the Future For Women

Power talk, W style.

W London & Female Narratives present WHAT SHE SAID with an incredible panel of bold and inspiring women.

GIRL TECH: Women Shaping The Future For Women

Technology is the future - we’re slowly coming to grips with that fact, but when coders are 88% male and women own only 5% of start-ups and make up only 7% of the partners at the top 100 venture capital firms, what does this mean for women’s future?

For technology to effectively assist and represent the population as a whole, the boardrooms and work forces must reflect the population as a whole too.

To celebrate London’s many Tech festivals this month, we bring you insightful and game-changing conversation between some of the world’s leading women in tech, who are using their platforms to create a better and more connected future for women all over the world. 

From the future of Fem Tech, dating apps, coding, hiring with diversity in mind and using tech for philanthropy, these women are shaping all our futures.

A CONVERSATION WITH:

AMANDA BONNIER - Brand Manager of Natural Cycles: the only certified contraceptive app
LOUISE ALEXANDRA TROEN - Global Brand Director for Bumble: women making the first move for dating, friendship and business
ANISAH OSMAN BRITTON - Founder of 23 Code Street: a coding school for all women which, for every paying student in the UK, teaches a woman in the slums of India
CLAIRE TAVERNIER: COO of Girl Effect: A non-profit using tech to empower girls to change their lives

MODERATED BY:
ABADESI OSUNSADE: Founder of Hustle Crew, a career advancement community for the underrepresented in tech, and the author of "Dream Big Hustle Hard: A Millennial Woman’s Guide to Success in Tech”

LONDON: Programming Diversity into the Tech Industry

Programming Diversity into the Tech Industry

Tackling inequality and underrepresentation in tech is a constant challenge facing the industry today, and something tech businesses of all shapes and sizes have at the top of their agenda. Handle Recruitment and Kobalt Music are pleased to be hosting a meet-up in which a varied panel of experts will discuss their own experiences and expertise from varying perspectives.

  • How have organisations tackled creating a welcoming culture & a genuine sense of belonging?
  • What challenges have they faced building diversity programs and gaining buy-in from the business?
  • How can start-ups drive forward a truly diverse culture from the get-go - and is it possible to translate these progressive ways of working within more mature business structures?

As we struggle to find the next generation of tech workers, we need to find ways to attract and retain people from all backgrounds to work in the industry. But are we putting in place strategies to actively seeking out diverse talent? And if so is our organisation culturally diversity-ready?

LONDON TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2018 : The Future Impact of Artificial Intelligence... by Future Thinking in Digital Marketing Meetup Group

Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, recently stated that AI will have a 'more profound' impact than electricity or fire. The Mckinsey Global Institute forecasts that by 2030 up to 375 million people, or 14% of the global workforce, could lose their jobs due to automation and AI. Until now the main beneficiaries of AI has been the technology sector. Most of the major tech firms Google, Amazon, Facebook in the West and Alibaba and Baidu in China would not be as successful without AI for product recommendations, targeted advertising, logistics forecasting, robots for product sorting, facial recognition and machine learning in voice assistants like Alexa and Google Home.

The excitement around AI has made it increasingly difficult to separate reality from hype with many senior business people believing AI to be magic wand while others have warned ‘The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race’ (Stephen Hawkin)

The event will examine whether AI poses a threat or opportunity. This includes a keynote address on the real challenges of implementing AI in the workplace from Paul Hayden, Head of Data for Paddy Power Betfair followed by a panel discussion including contributions from Paul Clarke, Chief Technology Officer from Ocado and Paul Mason, Director of Emerging Technology from Innovate UK Surprise entertainment, drinks and networking.

Borrowing from this August 2017 article by Vox.
"Getting more women into STEM careers is about more than just increasing workplace diversity. It's a matter of financial security and upward mobility for women. Workers in science and engineering fields are better paid and have more job security than most other workers in the United States.

It's also where the jobs are. The US Department of Labor expects STEM jobs to grow faster than all other occupations between 2012 and 2022.

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.
