Experienced Technology Event Sponsored by Bloomberg
We are delighted to announce our first-ever STEM Women event aimed at technology professionals with commercial experience. This industry-focused event will attract our community members who have already graduated and are working in technology, along with tech professionals who are hearing about STEM Women for the first time.
This technology networking event will address a number of topics that are likely to be relevant to professionals in the early years of a technology career. There will be opportunities to hear talks and panel discussions from employers and specialist trainers, whilst also networking with employers and fellow professionals.
There will be practical sessions focussing on mentoring, careers advice, managing a team, dealing with imposter syndrome, gaining professional qualifications, maintaining a work/life balance and understanding the skills that employers will be looking for in the future.
