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.
