It’s nearly that time of year again where our friends over at everywoman hold their leadership academy at IBM’s Southbank.
The 2015 everywoman Academy: Advancing Women in Technology aims to equip women in technology with the skills they need to advance their careers and to become confident leaders.
As a partner of the everywoman academies Computer Weekly has attended this event several times and I always look forward to learning something new and worthwhile in the workshops available on the day.
With the need for IT professionals expected to grow by 1.6% per annum until 2020, the industry needs to do more to not only encourage more women to consider a career in IT but to also retain the talented ones that already work within the sector.
During this year’s October academy you will learn how to:
· Developing a long term career plan
· How to stay motivated
· Creating a positive personal brand
· Building resilience to navigate workplace challenges

Venue: IBM Southbank, London
Date: 15 Oct 2015 8.30am to 4.45pm
