How women can take back tech

Why are women so under-represented in the tech world? Why does this matter? What can we do about it?

Why do so many of us - particularly women - feel the tech world is beyond reach? Women are woefully under-represented in tech - they represent roughly a mere quarter of the UK STEM workforce. This means an ever increasing series of big decisions are made by a small number of people, mainly men.

So, what are the challenges for all of us who want to wrest back control? How do we get past the gatekeepers? When we do, what are the opportunities that will open up - for us in our individual roles and for the future of tech? Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon shows we have more agency than we think, drawing on her own experience and the stories of other pioneers and innovators to provide examples, exercises and practical guidance for how to get started and take control.

There will always be problems. But, as we know, women are problem-solvers.

This event will be chaired by Rebecca Walsh, member of the MATRIX panel and Design Director at Big Motive.
