Promoting women already in the tech space will give others the confidence to enter it
We are thrilled to present a panel debate that features inspiring female & non-binary leaders, coders, students and recruiters in tech who will share their thoughts on what it's like to enter and be a part of our versatile industry. We will be discussing imposter syndrome, why it is so important for women & non-binary to choose tech and how you can get involved.
