Woman in tech? Join the community, be inspired, create your future

Employers in the tech industry find it a challenge to retain women. Successful companies focus on mentorship, encouraging women to support one another and recognise that they will benefit if they encourage women to be themselves – fully themselves, with their own freely expressed perspectives.

WITBoss: a unique community for women in tech

 Do you commit to knowing your own mind and speaking it in the workplace?

Are you confident enough to trust your own instincts amongst your colleagues?

Lisa Jones, Founder and Director at Barclay Jones will be leading and challenging these discussions at WITBoss, including:

  • who she looks to for inspiration
  • lessons learned during her career
  • how she’s thrived in the industry.

WITBoss is a free invitation-only networking event for female leaders in the IT industry. It takes place on 20 June 2017 in central Leeds from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. Click here to register your interest.

 

Who is Lisa Jones?

“I love working in tech and being a woman can of course be a challenge. I’m looking forward to sharing how I worked my way from being a history graduate with a massive fear of tech, to an award-winning IT Director in a very sales-led business to business company. The ceiling may be glass, but I am keen to discuss practical tips for developing great strategies to improve your PR and career in technology.”

Lisas most definitely an inspiration to women in tech – we’ll be interviewing her ahead of the event so watch this space for the release of the podcast in the coming weeks.
