At Primetics, we are very excited to be attending the ITA Women In Tech conference, which brings together women from the UK’s top technology firms. Only 14% of senior executives at the 500 largest technology companies are female, this event brings together the ladies of tech and represents the importance of diversity within the workplace.
Recently, we were announced as a Founding Member of a New Tech Alliance that has been launched to improve diversity within the tech sector. (if you missed that blog, you can read it here). Inclusive Tech Alliance are a membership body dedicated to increasing diversity in the tech sector, working alongside a variety of stakeholders.
We are very proud to be a part of a much larger group and a business that recognizes diversity and understands the importance within our workforce. There are many benefits that come from diversity in the workplace, and when employees respect each other, morale, productivity and employee engagement increases. Something that we are very passionate about, here at Primetics.
Throughout the conference, we will hear from a number of inspiring women within the Tech sector;
Jacky Wright – Chief Digital & Information Officer at HM Revenue & Customs, Transformational global tech leader.
Rachel Bale – Vice President, Global Enterprise Partnerships at MasterCard.
Meri Williams – CTO at Monzo, a bank that lives in your phone, trying to make money work for everyone.
Joy Foster – Founder and Managing Director of Tech Pixies. Tech Pixies teaches women how to use modern technology in order to help them return to work, change career and start businesses.
Maria Hernandez – Head of Country Digitisation for Cisco Systems, focusing on accelerating the UK Digital Agenda.
Very inspiring guests are speaking throughout the day, inspiring us and helping us to understand more how we can drive more diversity and inclusion within our business.
Keep an eye on our social media handles for updates throughout the day, we are looking forward to being a part of such a fantastic event.
