How to SLAY in Tech without getting technical - Women in Tech

Build a successful and rewarding career in Technology without sacrificing your lifestyle – or writing a single line of code!

What's it all about?

The Tech sector is a large and varied one, with a variety of roles that require a diverse set of skills. People tend to think of roles in Tech as best suited to ‘smart’ or technically talented people – or that being good at Math, Science, or Computer Skills is essential to working in a technology company. This is simply not true! These days it’s all about people and the way you communicate and interact with them so the technical skills are just a supplement to your success.

Why working in Tech is great
$$ Tech roles usually have great salaries $$
Great options to change roles at every point in your career
Flexible and Work from home options provide more family time and lifestyle options
Progressive industry with great culture supporting diversity
Women are in high demand in this industry, from entry level to executive roles.
You don’t have to be a nerd to be happy in this career.

Come be inspired by the stories of people who have flourished in technical roles and industries with no technical background whatsoever. As part of the session, we will go through a checklist of typical skills and attributes required in each of the roles, so you can see how they match your existing capabilities . You will also have the chance to talk to the speakers, and other ‘mentors’, and understand how you could transfer your expertise to a role in technology.

You can drop into this event at any time.
