Delegates will assess priorities for the development of a diverse talent pipeline - looking at what more might be done to address barriers to entry, encourage more women to study STEM, and improve links between education, policy and industry.
They will also consider the future role of women in the development of cutting-edge tech and driving the UK’s international competitiveness.
Following the publication of the first year of gender pay gap reporting, further sessions will examine issues around recruitment, career progression and equal pay, as well as discussing wider challenges regarding workplace culture - including improving transparency, enhancing employer engagement, encouraging mentoring and network initiatives, and establishing conducive working environments for all.

Technology & Communications
Few industries evolve more quickly than technology and communications, so protecting proprietary data and innovations, securing skilled staff, maximising contractual relationships and exploiting brand assets are critically important.
