Pioneer Parity. Drive Diversity. Be a Change Maker. TechXLR8 is putting the issue of workplace equality on centre stage in 2018, to help raise awareness and drive change in the UK tech industry.
Diversity is vital for innovation. FACT. Evidence shows that a diverse and inclusive workforce brings diverse perspectives, interpretations and solutions, resulting in better innovation and improved financial performance. Gains can be generated with relatively small changes to the recruitment and make up of teams. If diversity paves a clear path for better overall performance, then why is there such a lack of parity in the UK tech sector? This session will examine the makeup of the UK tech industry and discuss why radical action is needed to ensure a dynamic future workforce of all ages, genders, backgrounds and nationalities. Be inspired by industry leaders and diversity champions as they pull apart traditional hiring processes, KPI’s, quotas, prejudices and discuss best practices to ensure a happy, inclusive, winning team.

“We’re proud to be part of London Tech Week, letting all girls know that they can pursue a career in tech. Girls tell us they are confident in their tech skills, but they don’t see enough role models or think tech jobs are for them. That’s why we’re creating badges and activities to help shift girls’ perceptions and support them to be part of the tech sector, that will benefit from the wealth of ideas and expertise young women bring.”
