The gender balance in the technology industry is a subject many companies, organisations and start-up incubators world-wide are trying to tackle, but what can the sector do to accelerate the pace of change?

Marketing and communications agency Big Partnership, supported by ScotlandIS, is hosting a meetup on Wednesday 27 September 2017 at its Edinburgh office to discuss the industry's progress so far, and what we need to do to further support and encourage diversity.

Guest speakers include Rebecca Pick, Founder and CEO of Pick Protection, Sharon Moore, Industry Technical Leader for Travel and Transportation at IBM and Morna Simpson, Founder of Girl Geek Scotland, who will discuss their observations of the technology industry, the experiences they've had and also what policies organisations and Government can put in place to transform attitudes and promote behavioural change.

A relaxed, but informative evening, the meetup will include pizza, nibbles and drinks, allowing time for networking and a question and answer session.

We look forward to welcoming you to what we hope will be an insightful and enjoyable evening.
