Girls In Tech is partnering with the Prime Minister’s office and Inspiring Fifty to host a mentoring session, where top women in the European technology community will mentor women seeking a successful career in tech, or to further their career in tech (however it does not need to be a very technical role).
Girls In Tech is now looking for forty women interested in meeting role models at this high-profile session at the Downing Street itself next Friday 6 March at 2.30pm They will get the chance to meet and learn from a phenomenal group of women who were recently identified as the most inspiring women in the European tech community. See the list of confirmed mentors at the bottom of this blog post.
These women role models were selected following a year-long search by Inspiring Fifty, a pan-European programme that identifies, encourages, develops and showcases women in leadership positions within the technology sector.
The mentoring session follows a roundtable hosted by Baroness Shields at 10 Downing Street to debate the opportunities and challenges of faced by women in tech, at which Girls In Tech will be taking a seat!
Application to the event are now closed.
We have closed the form to apply this morning after communication with the Prime Minister office that they are looking for forty young women – and after receiving phenomenal interest over the last four days.
If you have applied, you will hear from Girls in Tech later today on the selection process – and will be soon confirmed or not if you have been allocated a seat.
won’t be are not able to offer everyone a seat, event though we wish so. For the ones that were not selected, we will back to you with other mentoring opportunities in the soon future – Girls in Tech is to start a leadership mentoring program in the spring.
Be reassured and stay tuned via our Facebook or Twitter.
