As part of its commitment to encouraging more women to work within the IT industry, FDM Group will be holding a “Women in IT Advantage Session” on 17th August at its London Bridge office.
The free event will give female graduates and students the opportunity to learn more about the different career options and support available to them, should they wish to pursue a career in the field.
FDM Chief Operating Officer Sheila Flavell said, “We are delighted to be holding this event with the aim of promoting the lucrative world of IT to this latest generation of female graduates.”
Representatives from key organisations such as the UKRC and Women in Technology will be delivering presentations to give graduates an insight into how their organisations operate and benefit women in IT.
UKRC South East Hub Manager, Veronica Benson said, “The UKRC is incredibly keen to see more women participating in this field and is delighted to be involved in an event aimed at women which offers them a real opportunity to pursue a career in IT.”
Managing Director of Women in Technology, Maggie Berry, is equally thrilled to be participating in the event, “At Women in Technology we are dedicated to encouraging as many female graduates as possible to actively embark on a career in IT as there are lots of exciting, and potentially well paid, opportunities available to them. This FDM run event will be an excellent way of reaching out to these young women,” she said.
Female FDM employees, including Sheila Flavell, will also discuss their experiences as well as the variety of career options FDM can provide through its graduate programme.
If you are female and considering an IT-related career, then take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear from the experts and start building relationships with people who can support you throughout your career.
