We are delighted to support this Talent4Point0 event - talent4point0.com
In recent years, there has been an increased uptake and popularity of technical training and development courses. Innovative organisations in Scotland have been at the forefront of this development, helping to aid and develop the next generation of data savvy professionals.
✔ What is this journey like for women in STEM?
✔ Have they embraced this trend- what obstacles have they faced?
✔ And, most importantly - what opportunities wait for them at the end?
Together, we will discuss some of the key issues around women career changers and those who have up-skilled.
✔ How we do make women aware of the sideways move into tech?
✔ How are we able to embrace and encourage women from non-technical/ coding backgrounds to upskill and meet the demand of the skills shortage?
✔ What are the main challenges of returning/ starting a career in tech?
During this event, we will follow the story of 3 influential women in STEM, who each have their own unique story – followed up with a lively questions and answer discussion.
