Ada Lovelace is credited as the first computer programmer and was an early trailblazer for women in tech!

But despite Ada, and many other pioneers like her, women are vastly underrepresented in the tech industry today. Women represent only 19% of the tech workforce…

In this webinar, you’ll discover the practical steps tech leaders can take to attract and retain more women. You’ll learn how to: spark early interest, introduce job diversity and flexibility, create inclusive roles, build diverse recruitment and how apprenticeships can help empower women to build their career in the tech industry.

Our expert panel will share best practice, case studies and success stories from women tech talents, recruiters and employers. We share insights on how to source the best talent for a gender diverse team, how some industries are putting women off joining their companies and how to increase your talent pool by attracting talented women.

We have the power to create a more diverse workplace. So, why not join the movement and help the tech industry discover the next generation of Adas!
