***UPDATE*** – TEACAMP TODAY IS CANCELLED DUE TO THE WEATHER. IT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULE FOR THURSDAY THE 8TH OF MARCH, SAME VENUE
March Teacamp will be with Charlotte Jee, the founder of the Women In Tech movement here in the UK.
How did Women in Tech come about?
It all started with Charlotte Jee – sitting through the umpteeth event with an all-male panel, thinking: ‘enough is enough’. So she made this list for the magazine she edits, Techworld, with the aim of ensuring no one has any excuse not to have women speaking at their tech events: https://www.techworld.com/careers/here-are-348-uk-women-who-could-speak-at-your-tech-event-3645661/
Charlotte then took that one step further, launching a new venture called Jeneo which helps tech companies and teams to source fantastic women and under-represented groups for their events. She’s also branched out into trying to help boost diversity more generally within the industry, and is starting to offer consultancy, training and other services.
Come to Teacamp in March to hear Charlotte talk about the challenges she’s faced in setting this up, what she sees as the challenges going forward. What would you like to ask her? Are you facing similar challenges? Would you like to help? Here’s your prefect opportunity to discuss with like minds in a safe space.
