Influential Women in Tech

Closing the gap for women in IT, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness

Format: In-Person Event, Cirencester

Date: 10th November 2022

Time: 4.30pm to 10pm

Overview

To the leaders, the innovators, the tech-mums, the game-changers, the enablers, the pioneers, and the powerful women that work in the tech world –  this event is for you!

The tech industry has always been heavily dominated by men, with only 19% of women occupying positions within the industry. We are bringing women together to solve, support and inspire the next generation of women in IT. This event will also be a platform to raise funds for Better Futures and Maggie’s who provide support to people diagnosed with various cancers. This event aims to help support, and draw awareness to, the 5000 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK, as well as encourage a brighter future for women in the tech industry.

Women are striving, thriving and driving for change so let’s join for one evening to celebrate!

Breast Cancer Awareness – Information

Breast Cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. Most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50, however younger women can still be diagnosed with breast cancer. About 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. There’s a good chance of recovery if it’s detected at an early stage. For this reason, it’s vital that women check their breasts regularly for any changes and always have any changes examined by a GP.

We will be fundraising throughout the month of October and at the event in November, all proceeds will be donated to a selected Breast Cancer charity.
