What is Women In Tech Week?

WeAreTechWomen is excited to announce the inaugural UK Women in Tech week, taking place from October 7th to 11th, coinciding with Ada Lovelace Day. This week-long event will celebrate the achievements of women in the tech industry through a diverse array of both in-person and virtual events.

Partnering with organisations across the UK, we’ll be hosting discussions on career development, skill-building workshops, and ample networking opportunities. Through our website, attendees can easily book their spots for these events.

Additionally, we’ll be leveraging various social media platforms, including LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube, to livestream events and engage with a wider audience. We’re collaborating with corporate partners who will open their doors to host events, offering valuable learning and networking experiences.

Furthermore, we’re committed to fostering the next generation of women in tech through mentoring programs and initiatives aimed at sparking the interest of young individuals in technology, in collaboration with our partners at Tech She Can. Stay tuned for more details as we’ll release our full list of events on 01 August 2024.

Why Women In Tech Week?

Over the course of the last two years, there have been a number of research papers which show  the number of women in tech and engineering is decreasing.

Two recent reports, including our own with Ipsos Mori pointed to the fact that one in five women are thinking of leaving the tech industry altogether. Most recently conversations across key social media channels have also pointed towards budget cuts and initiatives being shelved that would have helped to accelerate women in to senior tech positions. With only 21% of women in the tech industry and AI on our doorsteps, the digital skills gap – it is time to level up, not pull back!
