Black Tech Experience - Navigating the Tech Diversity Gap

Wednesday 16th October

6pm – 9.30pm

In an environment where you are “the only one”, it is easy to feel alone. The Black Tech Experience – Navigating the Tech Diversity Gap will bring together Black tech professionals from various organisations and provide a forum where Black professionals will be able to explore tried and tested ways to advance their careers, stay on top of their game and create impact across the sector. With insightful panel sessions and keynote talks, attendees will leave this event equipped with knowledge and recommendations on how to successfully navigate the tech industry.

Who is this for?
We invite all Black professionals working in the tech industry who would like to develop, be inspired, and have real, honest and open discussions in an environment that supports learning and growth.
