AND She Can: What the Tech?! Anyone Can Tech

Anyone Can Tech is the first session in the AND She Can, What The Tech Series - Graduate Edition.

This session aims to debunk the myths about working in tech, inspire women by engaging with peers from the tech industry, and analyse the importance of diversity and inclusion in collaboration and innovation.

We will focus on graduates to inspire them into technology careers. We aim to share stories and insights from inspiring women across the technical and non-technical roles of the tech industry including talks from the technically brilliant Ellie Crome, along with Shan Beerstecher sharing her journey to the top.

The session will include some fun and interactive activities to explore the audience’s perspectives on the technology industry and myths they may have heard, before jumping into a diverse panel about inclusion and diversity in the workplace. The audience will have the chance to share some of their questions via chat which we will run through with our panel towards the end.
