About


The University of Nottingham's Women In Technology conference day is for everyone; tech enthusiasts, non-programmers, students at college or university and women or men from all walks of life.

Only 14.4% of STEM jobs in the UK are occupied by women and out of all the CS students in the UK only 17.4% are female.

This event strives to celebrate the individuals behind the figures, and share their fascinating life experiences in the tech industry.

There will be three parts to the day; talks from some of the most fascinating women within the tech industry, workshops; from hands on programming to smaller talks, and opportunities to network with some of the best companies around.

HackSoc and the University of Nottingham have teamed up to inspire and encourage students to pursue technology as a hobby or as a career.

We want to get students excited by their potential.
