Women in Tech (online event)

About the event

The premiere event of our Discover Digital programme, Women in Tech, is a professional development opportunity for anyone within the education sector.

Discover Digital is a series of events which will provide an inspiring educational masterclass platform and support our students, local schools, the education sector and the wider Barnsley community into digital.

The Women in Tech event takes place online on Wednesday 5 May (1.00pm to 3.00pm) and attendees can join masterclasses with female industry leaders from major international technology companies who will:

• Discuss how they got involved in technology
• Have conversations on potential barriers each may have had to overcome
• Share information about roles and careers within the digital technologies sector

Attendees can also participate in free certified Microsoft qualifications (MOS, MCE, MTA, MTC) and enter a national competition, with chances to win technology prizes and work experience with Microsoft.
