London (PRWEB UK) 22 February 2015
Following the success of the last Women in Technology Breakfast Briefing, Montash is proud to bring you their 2nd Women in Technology Breakfast Briefing which will be held on Friday 1st May at The Grand Connaught Rooms, Holborn, London.
The event will be an open discussion forum for top executives to discuss the lack of female CIOs and IT Leaders within the Technology industry. The panel will also cover what organisations are doing to see more women in the boardroom, and share their own experiences and challenges in attracting and retaining female technology talent.
The speaker panel consists of leading IT executives including: Monique Shivanandan – Global CIO at Aviva, Judi Edwards – Executive Partner at Gartner and Mike Bowden – Global CIO at Anglo American. The discussion will be chaired by Montash’s CEO Andy Larholt.
Andy Larholt commented, “After the success of our last Women In Technology event, we are proud to be hosting our 2nd WIT briefing. The last event was oversubscribed and we had some great feedback from the attendees. He also added “The panel will provide an insight into a topic that affects the industry on a large scale. It’s an ongoing issue for organisations which are trying to do more to encourage the employment of female IT leaders, but the question is, are they doing enough? This event should be insightful for our audience.”
Tickets cost £20 with all proceeds going to Groundwork London; a social and environmental urban regeneration charity supported by Montash. CIO UK Magazine will support the briefing as a media partner, with the Editor-in-chief attending the event and providing post-event coverage.
Mark Chillingworth the Editor in Chief at CIO UK commented "We're not digging ditches," one leading woman CIO told me in a recent interview. "I couldn't agree more, there is no excuse from any party for the low number of women in IT, we have to work together as a community to solve this problem as increasingly organisations and CIOs need skilled technologists that have emotional intelligence. And with an increasing number of CIOs telling me they are worried about a growing skills shortage and the changing nature of their departments, I am keen to hear from business leaders, who are perhaps struggling to recruit highly-skilled employees and direct reports, how organisations can take a proactive approach to attracting, recognising, and retaining female technology talent".
He also added “CIO UK are delighted to work in association with Montash and support them as a media partner.”
