Attracting, retaining and advancing women to and in the IT profession – stepping up the UK efforts

You are invited to the launch of W-Tech at 10:30 on 3 February 2009 at Savoy Place, London.

An initiative by BCS and womenintechnology.co.uk, W-Tech 2009 is a key step in changing the way the UK attracts, retains and advances women in the IT profession.

At the launch we have set up a panel to make a call to action to help stem the dramatic fall in the levels of women participating in IT. By coming along you will be able to contribute to the debate and shape the BCS strategy on women in IT.

You will also be able to meet and connect with over 500 technical women who have already registered to attend W-Tech and meet with industry experts and professionals.
