07/03/2020: TECH(K)NOW Day London | TECH(K)NOW

TECH(K)NOW Day londonWelcome to the 6th TECH(K)NOW Day London! Join Women in Tech and Women in Startups on Saturday, March 07, from 9am to 5pm.

TECH(K)NOW DAY has been organised to provide a place and venue for anyone who identifies as a woman to go and learn new tech skills (see details below).   If you are a woman in tech or a woman wanting to get into tech, then this is for you.   Back in March this year, we held another TECH(K)NOW Day around International Women's Day with the theme - #BalanceforBetter.  We will continue on with that theme this March 07!

What's in store?

HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

Throughout the day, there will be a whole range of hands-on workshops available for both -

- complete beginners (for you to explore what's out there that you could be learning and find out for yourself if coding is for you)

- experienced developers (for you to explore other technologies/languages you might currently not be familiar with, for example - machine learning, AI, graph databases, AngularJS, messaging bots and a whole range of other topics).

TALKS

There will also be separate tracks for talks, so if you are not in one of the workshops above, you can listen to interesting talks and speakers about

  • Tech topics (current and emerging)
  • Personal Development
  • Career Development
  • Diversity / Inclusivity / Unconscious Bias

We particularly want to highlight the talk on Career Development (don't miss it!), where you'll learn about

  • Salary negotiation for women (including talks about new regulations coming up on equal pay)
  • Confidently applying for a job you don’t have ALL the skills for (yet)
  • Areas you should consider developing skills in
  • Presenting yourself well in interview
  • How to get the most out of your relationship with your recruiter
  • Re entering the workforce after a break
  • Making your CV stand out

CAREER HUB / CAREER FAIR

There will be a career hub where experts will be on had to help you - if you want to have one-to-one conversations about the above career development-related topics.

STARTUP SPACE and STARTUP ADVICE SPACE
We will also be featuring a number of women-led startups (meaning the founder or one of the co-founders is a woman).    Want a free exhibition space for your startup?   Apply here >> http://www.bit.ly/techknowdayspace.

There will also be a host of companies/organisations on hand to give advice to women who already have a startup or are thinking of getting started up!
