WITBoss to launch with prevalent topic
Corecom Consulting is set to launch WITBoss on 19 May 2016 as part of our award-winning Boss Event Networking Series. WITBoss is specifically targeted towards female leaders within IT and we’re pleased to be welcoming Gillian Arnold, Chair of British Computing Society (BCS) Women and Non-Exec on the Board of WISE, to speak at the event which will take place in central Leeds.
Gillian Arnold, also listed in the Computer Weekly top 10 most influential women in IT for 2015, has revealed her presentation topic for WITBoss and has titled it ‘Deconstructing the Glass Ceiling’. Gillian’s presentation will look at the elements that can mean an inequality of opportunity for women in Technology and how to counter them. Her talk will outline the essential elements which make up the glass ceiling, the impact that they will have, and how to ensure you make it through.
Speaking ahead of the event, Gillian Arnold said:
“Shockingly, we make little progress on increasing the numbers of women in technology roles in the UK. Whilst I believe that much of the issue is for the employers to deal with, I know that women in tech will want to get active and boost their own chances of getting the best career they can get. So this session will offer hints and tips on getting through the glass ceiling.”
As well as having Gillian Arnold as the guest speaker, Helen Wollaston, Chief Executive of WISE will be attending the event to share her experiences and explain the campaigns that are in place to promote women in science, technology, and engineering industries.
