Women Like Me: Gender, Tech & Politics

  • House of Commons SW1A 0AA United Kingdom (map)

Women Like Me is officially partnering with the APPG (All Party Parliamentary Group) on diversity and inclusion in STEM.

We believe STEM businesses should be challenged to become more inclusive.

Throughout the evening discussions, we will explore what inclusion means for BAME women and will establish whether there are changes that businesses and policy makers can make to resolve these issues.

The Agenda:

We will provide the catalyst for the next APPG formal enquiry by speaking with women from BAME backgrounds who work in technology and parliament about the shared experience.

This dicussion will feature an immersive 360 video that has been designed to accompany the topic of conversation.
