Amy Lynch: It’s up to us!
Venue: Valtech, Basil Chambers. 65 High Street. M4 1FS, Manchester
Time: Wednesday January 20th, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Amy Lynch, co-organiser of Ladies Who Code Manchester has organised an event with Lean Agile Manchester to discuss diversity and other issues in the tech industry.
“The tech industry faces significant challenges – skills shortages in certain areas, a growing focus on making money as opposed to doing something for the greater good and a general lack of diversity amongst those who make up the IT workforce. As people working in the industry, we have an opportunity to transform the future of IT by giving something back, providing opportunities for others and inspiring the next generation. This session explores ideas and initiatives that will help us to drive positive change, growing a more inclusive and highly skilled tech community for the future.”
