Event Details

During the session, you will hear from executives from Snowflake, AWS, Code First Girls, Lloyds Banking Group, and Pepper Group on empowering gender diversity in the technology industry. 

With the pressing issue of gender disparity within the technology sector, the panel aims to provide an open discussion on the strategies for narrowing the gender gap. The panel will cover the following topics:

Fostering an inclusive workforce

To bridge the gender gap in the industry, businesses need to drive tech and data innovation with varied teams, ensure bias-free recruitment, attract diverse candidates through inclusive job descriptions, and have initiatives to advance women in tech roles.

Empowering women in tech education

STEM education needs to be promoted throughout early engagement to higher education, as well as ongoing skill development as tech education should be a lifelong learning project.

Leadership and mentorship

In order to pave the way for women in tech, female leadership is vital as role models to inspire new entrants to the industry. Having mentorship by linking aspiring women with pros would also increase exposure in the next tech generation.
