Diversity in technology 2017: Alternative routes into tech - how people can succeed

Computer Weekly business editor Clare McDonald chairs a debate at our 2017 diversity in technology event, to discuss how to attract more young people into IT.

As the skills gap in technology grows even greater and firms complain university graduates don’t have the skills needed for jobs, some are looking elsewhere for the talent they need. But parents and teachers are not always supportive of different routes into careers, so how can young people identify and take advantage of the opportunities open to them? Three young people describe their very different routes into the technology industry and how people can succeed in tech without taking the traditional path.

Speakers on the panel are:

  • Kirstie Wilkins, technology consulting analyst, Deloitte
  • James Roberts, intern, CA Technologies
  • Helen Fraser, FDM consultant for Barclays
