100+ women in technology preparing for leadership
100+ middle managers, rising stars and future leaders joined the sold out everywoman Academy: Advancing Women in Technology - a day of networking and career insights by women in technology excelling in their roles and career experts.
Our academies are an invaluable experience for our delegates, enabling 1000s of women to become confident in their working lives or prepared for leadership. Delegates expanded their professional networks and returned to work motivated and armed with practical methods to build strong networks, overcome stressful situations and stick to career plans.

She is the Head of Diversity & Inclusion at IBM, a chartered occupational psychologist, author of Where Have All the Senior Women Gone, and one of the many incredible minds at the academy sharing their knowledge about recognising your strengths and becoming successful.
