Women in Tech Dorset: Recruit, Retain, Develop

- 8:00 pm

Join Women in Tech Dorset to celebrate the best practice from local businesses in recruiting diverse candidates, retaining the workforce and delivering opportunities for growth. The responsibility falls on businesses to create a hiring process and culture that give women a feeling of belonging and confidence in their place within the industry.

The event is open to all and will celebrate supporting women already working in STEM by challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, broadening perceptions and generally celebrating women’s achievements to help create a gender-equal world. Contribute to discussion, and like Madonna;

"As women we have to start appreciating our own worth and each other's worth. Seek out strong women to befriend, to align yourself with, to learn from, to be inspired by, to collaborate with, to support, to be enlightened by."

The Innovation Studio at Arts University Bournemouth operates as a lab for creative technologies, a space for start-ups and regional enterprises, and a hub for industry engagement, with a focus on collaboration, high skills development, entrepreneurship, research, and prototyping. Women in Tech Dorset is delighted to host the launch of our Playbook in this venue. Tours will be available.
