Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 20.35.53ThoughtWorks & Manchester Girl Geeks are working together to bring you an evening of lightning talks to celebrate International Women’s Day 2014. The event is open for registrations and we are also looking for speakers to deliver short talks (around 5 minutes) around topics you feel passionately about.

thoughtworksWhether you’re keen to encourage women to study/work in IT or simply share your own personal journey, this is a great opportunity for experienced and inexperienced speakers alike. Please contact alynch@thoughtworks.com if you would like to be involved.

Some ideas:

  • Your professional achievements – eg. projects you’ve worked on, exciting opportunities
  • Your career journey – why IT, what jobs have you done?
  • Things you are involved in outside of work – Code Club, Young Rewired State, user groups etc.
