BIG BIG Thank you

Tired woman

To all the brilliant sponsors, volunteers and attendees!

We had a fantastic time and loved every second of the actual day. It was amazing to have so many of our great members come along to volunteer … we really do love you all. It was great to hear so many of your success stories that we played a part in, the hard part was all yours so big congrats! Please stay in touch as we feel like proud parents when we hear how well you are doing. To the newer members who came along to support and be part of the event – massive thanks for coming out of your comfort zone on a wet day! We will support you!

The Sponsors were amazing – so engaged and supportive and brilliantly open to talking to not just job-ready, but to advise and guide the returners or tech-curious, we salute you!

To all the attendees – Good Luck and come to us if you need support – check out our Women’s Tech Hub page for details on our support and networking. We are just joining with Codehub for free training support on our Workshop Wednesdays so come along and be part of it all.

As you can see from the image, we are back on it and raring to go. Actually we are having a week in Falmouth to discuss how we take this forward to be the BEST recruitment event for tech diversity in the World! (yes we are tired and hopeful .. but it’s all possible right?)

Love to you all, we can’t do it without you!

Welcome Aboard

Welcome banner

We are finally off and running with the Careers fair and are speaking to lots of great companies. The idea behind supporting our members has been in discussion for over a year so its great to finally put it into action. We are aware that there are many companies and agencies talking about diversity and inclusion but we have always been about doing and not just talking about it.

Our members already recognise that and rather than just sitting on panels and telling us that they agree with it, they’ve actually put some money behind it and supported us with implementing practical solutions. So we would like to say a big thank you to all our members whom we all hope to see at the fair (its part of the membership).

So thanks go to KETL, ALD, UltraSOC, Esoterix, Deloitte & Bud.

And a Big thanks to GRAPHCORE for coming aboard – we look forward to working with you! Anybody wanting to join the fair, which includes Women’s Tech Hub membership please mail us on info@tech3shed.org – or to speak to Women’s Tech Hub directly info@wthub.org.
