As an industry, IT is crying out for more “real life” female role models at all levels, so WeAreTheCity and Morgan Stanley partnered for a fourth consecutive year to hold an innovative event to show 150 women how to become one.

The technology industry is full of potential role models, yet many women believe they have to be a “super woman” to deserve the title of “role model”. In a speed networking style event format, not-for-profit organisations, who are supporting the growth of women entering the technology industry, shared what opportunities are available and how to get involved.

Not-for-profits included TeenTech, BCSWomen, CompTIA, Aimar, CodeClub, Code First Girls, FutureFirst, Socitm, Inspiring the Future and Your Future, Your Ambition, Color in Tech, #techmums, AppsForGood and Stemettes.+
