To mark this year’s International Day of the Girl Child, Karismatic MInds are hosting an event on the 21st of November 2018 in partnership with Talent RISE and The Social Innovation Partnership (TSIP). “The RISE of a tech GirlForce” event will bring together young women from inner London communities & an array of female staff from across Talent UK to share their perceptions an experiences of working within the tech sector.
GIRLS - This year’s theme is “With Her: A Skilled Girl Force”. The UN notes that girls are preparing to enter a world of work that is being transformed by innovation and automation.
