Our Women ConnecTech network focuses on bringing together and growing the community of women in technology at Lloyds Banking Group. Our goal is to be the best place to work for Women in Tech and Data in the UK. This event is an opportunity to learn more about what Women in Tech do within our organisation, and use this session to walk away informed and empowered, thinking about what options are available and what you can do to overcome your own challenges. This event is open to all, regardless of experience in tech.
Through a panel discussion you will be introduced to women in key roles, what they do, how and why they achieved these positions and why their contributions are so important. This group will have a candid look at what are the barriers/challenges they faced; what myths they busted; how they created inclusive/support cultures and mindsets, and the impact this has on the technology that is delivered.
Attendees are also welcome to join the drop-in Speed Tech-working event taking place at the same venue either before or after this event, where they will have the opportunity for rapid one-to-one discussions with some of Lloyds Banking Group’s technology and data platform teams, and to hear more about careers in the bank.
