You can attend during the day, for the evening networking or for both parts of the event so if you are interested in coming along, please register online here.

The event is FREE to attend and from 11am there will be a recruitment fair and employer exhibition running alongside a packed programme of career development and technology talks, workshops and seminars including How to Behave in an All Male Team, Managing Your Online Profile, Interacting with Technology – by Text, Face, Voice and Touch and Green Data Centres & Utility Computing.

From 6pm, there will be a networking event (similar in style to the womenintechnology networking events) that’s going to be a ‘must attend’ networking opportunity for everyone interested in and involved with ‘Women in IT’.
