As devoted students at the University of Birmingham, we believe that community support is the key to encourage success and growth during these uncertain times.
That is why we created The Women In Tech society!
We believe that there are endless opportunities in the Technology field for women of all backgrounds. Regardless of your experience in this field, we are here to support and encourage you during your journey- and what better time to embark on this journey than now? Joining the Women In Tech society would be the perfect opportunity for women who are looking develop their skills and find better opportunities in a new and exciting field.
We have great ideas to put in place, ranging from networking and social events, to academic workshops which women of all backgrounds will be able take advantage of.
Over the next few months we want to be as close to you as possible; we aim to effectively communicate new ideas, opportunities and advice in order to empower and welcome our new community. We have put together various events, from hackathons to virtual webinars and workshops, which we plan to share with you on a weekly basis. As well as this, we will be regularly updating this blog to share personal experiences and advice from women across the STEM field; hoping to inspire you to take on new challenges!
We are excited to grow a thriving community, who work to share their own experiences and networks, in order to empower women in the field of Tech. Once we are all back on campus, we will have the society up and running, ready to organise a variety of events. Until then, we will be actively posting new ideas and opportunities on our social media pages- so make sure to keep up to date with these! (Link to these on our Home page)
We are excited to see as many of you here as possible, so that we can continue to grow an amazing community who encourage support each other.
