Westminster eForum

Women and the tech sector - skills, career progression and workplace culture

November 2018

This timely conference examined latest progress and next steps for attracting and retaining women across the technology sector, and supporting their progression.

Delegates assessed priorities for the development of a diverse talent pipeline - looking at what more might be done to address barriers to entry, encourage more women to study STEM, and improve links between education, policy and industry.

They also considered the business case for gender diversity, including the future role of women in the development of cutting-edge technologies and driving the UK’s international competitiveness.

Further sessions examined issues around recruitment, career progression and equal pay, and discussed wider challenges regarding workplace culture - including improving transparency, enhancing employer engagement, encouraging mentoring and network initiatives, and establishing conducive working environments for all.

Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
