MotherBoard Event: Tech & Data leadership – Creating change from the top

A conversation to change an industry on Thursday, July 22nd 12:30pm to 1:30pm.

Our next event on Thursday, July 22, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM, will feature a panel talk and Q&A with four industry leaders. We will be covering significant topics about the importance of driving positive change from the top, as well as how leaders can set a clear company policy to show their support and understanding for mums working within tech & data (eg. Maternity, child sickness, pregnancy loss etc), and why change will only truly happen when flexible working, shared parental leave and part-time working is offered to both men and women equally.

Our speakers include:

Stella Smith – CEO – Pirkx
Danny Bluestone – CEO – Cyber-Duck
Kavitha Rajendran – Head of Technology – notonthehighstreet
Mursal Hedayat – CEO – Chatterbox

< 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. >
