Organised by STEM Women

Join us for a free online event aimed at women working in technology.

The theme of this event will be “Career Advancement” and our industry speakers, career coaches and panelists will address how women can progress their career during a period of uncertainty and home working.

This virtual event, sponsored by Bloomberg, will be hosted by champion of fintech and female entrepreneurship, Julia Streets. There will also be a skills session that is particularly relevant during the pandemic, as Leadership Coach Sarah Perugia shows viewers how to present and communicate with purpose in a virtual environment!

Throughout the afternoon there will also be an opportunity for attendees to webchat, voice and video call with a range of tech employers. Active job hunters can apply for live roles, and there will be plenty of advice for women who are keen to progress within their current firm.

Sign up today, take part in our event and progress your career!
