On June 21st, our founder Chimeren Peerbhai will be a on a panel at London Tech Week at an event called Women in Technology. It will be an evening of talks to launch a new initiative #CodingAllowed – aimed at ensuring women are equipped with the correct knowledge and tools to break into the technology industry. The objective is to support socially responsible, equal and diverse global workforces to help increase the low 12 % information and communication technology roles within the UK. Of 100 female bachelor students, 12 graduate with as STEM major but only 3 continue to work in STEM fields 10 years after graduation.
This event offers an opportunity for women interested in a career in tech to meet a host of inspiring senior women in technology from a range of FTSE 100 organisations (such as our founder Chimeren) so they can ask questions, explore a variety of career options, seek advice, make connections.
