A conversation to change an industry on Friday, October 15th 12:30pm to 1:30pm.

Our next event on Friday, October 15th 12:30pm to 1:30pm is our fifth MotherBoard event in this years series and will feature a panel talk and Q&A with industry experts and will be covering the importance of coding boot camps and mentorship programs. We will be discussing what coding camps are doing to entice more women into tech and also how to get the best out of mentorship (What makes a good mentor, how to find a mentor, importance of having a mentor). Overall, this will be a guide on for women looking to get into software development and also how to support those who are looking to progress into leadership positions through vital support and guidance.

MotherBoard is a community that has been created to drive positive change throughout the UK Technology and Data sectors. Creating environments that support the inclusion of working mothers offers a significant solution to the shortage of talent across the Technology and Data sectors. We’re here to educate, challenge, and create that shift. We’re not here to berate, we’re here to connect, embrace and champion positive change-makers.

Our community is open to all. Mothers working in tech, organisations who are up-skilling returners back into work as well as employers that are consciously looking to create inclusive programmes to attract mothers into their Technology and Data teams. We actively encourage females, males, and non-binary folk to join us and to get involved. >
