Closing the Revolving Door for Women in Tech

Event Details

We need a cultural change. More women than ever are entering the tech industry, but half of them will leave by the age of 35.

 

How do we keep women engaged to stay in the tech industry?

And how do we empower women to not just stay, but thrive in their tech careers?

La Fosse is proud to partner with Preqin and the Tech Talent Charter to host a unique event that explores these issues.

During an afternoon of discussions and workshops, we’ll consider:

  • Gender-equal promotion and progression
  • Family-friendly cultures
  • Overcoming hostile work environments
  • Recognising and reducing the gender pay gap
  • Education and allyship through support networks

In a series of group activities, we’ll co-create a toolkit of practical tips to implement and track within your own business. Plus, hear thoughts from our guest panellists:

Sophie Hebdidge: Academy Director at futureproof: Sophie is the Academy Director at futureproof, a coding academy giving diverse talent their first step into tech. She is also the founder of Techniclarity, which gives female founders the tech know-how they need to lead their startups.

Debbie Forster MBE: CEO at the Tech Talent Charter: Debbie Forster is an award-winning leader and a recognised figure in the areas of diversity, tech, innovation and education and was named by Computer Weekly as the Most Influential Woman in UK IT for 2019. She is a portfolio consultant and is co-founder and CEO for the Tech Talent Charter, an industry collective which aims to deliver greater inclusion and diversity in the UK tech workforce.

Christoph Knaack: CEO at Preqin: As well as serving as the company’s CEO, Christoph is also an executive member of the Board. Christoph’s in-depth understanding of the alternatives industry is invaluable when overseeing Preqin’s day-to-day operations and leading on the company’s overall direction.

The solutions we create together will help retain and nurture female talent and set them on the path to becoming future business leaders. If you want to bring about comprehensive change for women in tech, register for your exclusive spot.
