Tech events to attend in Q4 2016

Attending events is one of the best ways to network and raise profile for you and your organisation. The tech industry is really spoilt for choice when it comes to conferences and events, with world-class speakers and attendee lists that include key influencers in the field.

If you’re anything like me, work and life often get in the way of attending everything you want to, so after 6 years in tech I’ve learnt it’s about quality over quantity. Below are my choices for Q4 of 2016 in London and why I think you should go.

Diversity in Tech

  • What?

A summit that brings together tech leaders focused on solving one of the biggest problems in industry: increasing diversity.

  • Why?

Because workplace diversity stats say it all – only one in 16 senior management roles in the UK are held by people from ethnic minorities while 18% of London’s tech companies have no women at board level. This is a chance to be part of the conversation and show your organisation’s commitment to tackling inequality in the workplace.

16th October

  • Who’s it for?

HR, senior management and anyone working on diversity initiatives.
