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!
