How to find your seat at the table as a female leader in tech



Getting to the top in technology is tough and it's especially tough for women. In the US, women in tech hold less than 28% of leadership positions.

According to a report from PwC, women in the UK make up only 5% of leadership positions. As technology evolves, companies without a diverse tech leadership will lose ground to competitors. 

In this 40-minute session, hosted by SheCanCode, Therese Cypher-Plissart, Software Engineer, Mission Planning at Outrider; Linda Chan, Principal Delivery Lead at Dunelm; and Carole Noutary, Beyond Printer Director at Domino Printing, will discuss what more companies can be doing to encourage more women into tech and more tech females into leadership roles.

Linda Chan, Principal Delivery Lead at Dunelm

Meet Linda, she works in delivery for Dunelm and is sometimes a party planner.
