location: BCEC (Birmingham Conference and Events Centre)

In the 2017/18 academic year only 19% of Computer Science students were women and in 2018 only 15% of Computer Science graduates were women. And yet there are countless studies showing that there is a shortage of digital and technology skills within the UK. We are pleased to offer you an opportunity to join us in a one-day conference to discuss ways we can all help in making the workplace and industry more appealing to women and help bridge the diversity and skills/recruitment gap.
