Closing the Gender Gap in Tech: What We Can Do

Hosted by AND Digital

Join us at Leeds Digital Festival as we hear from female developers at AND on their journey into tech, the challenges they faced, and what we can do as a community to build more inclusive and diverse organisations where women can thrive. We’ll also discuss some of the fantastic initiatives that are helping to encourage young women and girls into tech, such as AND’s work with Ahead Partnership. We’ll also spotlight our AND She Can series, which is an integral part of our work in building a diverse company and tech industry by empowering and enabling female talent.
