Events for students and career starters
We’re running a free, short workshop, within the Ada Scotland Festival, to share our Participant-Centred Planning Framework for running effective inclusion activities.
The workshop is sponsored by SICSA Scotland. The framework research was funded by Skills Development Scotland.
We’ve been working on gender balance projects and also investigating ways to improve their efficacy and we’d like to share this with you and provide an opportunity for you to share what you’ve been doing. Participants with no experience are also welcome.
In this online workshop, we’ll introduce you to our Participant-Centred Planning Framework, through the projects we’ve used it in and through breakout sessions in which you start to apply to your own (future or present) projects. It’s easy. You’ll like it. Continue reading
Free online workshop from Equate Scotland and Women into Tech as part of Ada Scotland Festival 2022.
Wednesday 19th October, 12:30 to 13:30, online.
This workshop is for women studying towards or thinking about a career in tech and/or wanting to move into an inclusive work environment.
Looking at both the opportunities and challenges for women in the tech industry, we will explore ways to build more inclusive workplaces and why this is particularly relevant and important in the tech industry. We will try to envision what our ideal organisation look like and provide you with tools and tips to build on this vision. This workshop is also an opportunity to meet with like-minded women, and find ways to navigate change in a constantly evolving workplace.
This workshop will support you to:
- Understand the barriers women may face when studying or working in tech
- Understand the importance of creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces
- Recognise non-inclusive environments or situations at work
- Envision how you want the future of work to look like
- Identify ways to enhance change and create a more inclusive tech sector
