Women in technology are looking for more skills, says networking group


Of course we have to take with a pinch of salt any "reports" which are designed to sell tickets to specific events, but this one sounds like it might have a grain of truth to it (especially as the tickets are free). Womenintechnology.co.uk, an online job board and networking group for women in IT, claims that many women in the industry are struggling with some aspects of their jobs.

“It’s obvious at all of our events that these women are intelligent and hard working but just need help in developing certain skills to allow them to really push their careers in the right direction,” says Maggie Berry, Director of womenintechnology.co.uk.

In response to this, the site has organized something called W-Tech in association with the British Computer Society, which is apparently the first event of its kind in the UK. Workshops and seminars will cover such topics as networking, political savvy, work/life balance and CV skills and there will be a champagne reception and networking session afterwards.

It's open to any woman in the IT industry, from graduates to top level management. If that's you and you're UK-bound (or already here) in February, you might want to take a look at the event's website to find out more.
