INSPIRING TODAY’S TALENT AND THE FUTURE GENERATION
Growing your network and meeting other women in tech can be a powerful solution to overcoming doubt. Having a community allows you to inspire one another, and enables you to share knowledge, career lessons and come up with diversity and inclusion solutions. There are a number of organisations focussed around driving this agenda bringing women in tech together to overcome some of these hurdles, and at Computacenter we are proud to have a number of programmes and sponsorships to play our part in this industry. From a series of STEM masterclasses to panel talks to coaching and mentoring. The benefits of these are relevant to everyone, regardless of job or gender.
