Generation Success, the London-based not for profit that aims to create equal opportunities for young people by offering networking and mentoring opportunities, today announces its “Women in Tech” event. The networking event is held at the UK Twitter offices and brings together a plethora of senior tech women in an open debate to address how women can achieve success in the notoriously male-dominated tech world.

Technology leaders from leading tech organisations such as Twitter, Vodafone, Microsoft and SAP come together on Tuesday evening to encourage more young women to pursue careers and take leadership roles in the tech industry.

The engaging event encourages an open debate between speakers and the audience and also offers a one-hour mentorship session with: Virginia Ekstein, Sales and Marketing Director EMEA at Microsoft, Leanne Taylor, Head of Financial Services and Insurance, Co- lead Business Women’s Network SAP UK, Rashada Harry, Infrastructure Specialist at Vodafone and founder of Your Future, Your Ambition, an organisation whose aim is to get more young people into stem sciences.

James Adeleke, Founder of Generation Success says that “it is equally important for men to contribute towards having more women in leadership roles in tech. An open debate about how this can be achieved is one way of creating further awareness about this. However, further change needs to be created by both men and women who are actively involved in shaping the tech industry.”

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
