it@cork WoMen in Tech Lunchtime Series
We are delighted to announce Marguerite Sayers, Managing Director of ESB Networks DAC as our November WoMen in Tech guest speaker. Join us for this lunch time event at the Montenotte Hotel, Cork.
In 2014, we launched our “WoMen in Tech” programme to support diversity and inclusion in the technology sector. One of the features of this programme has been our lunchtime series, aimed at bringing women together to network and hear from female role models who have blazed their own trail in this sector. The series was very well received among the technology community and most women leave the events feeling positive and empowered.
The focus on diversity and inclusion continues to grow in Ireland and it@cork wants to continue to play a part in driving this agenda within the technology sector.
The aim of the next series of talks is to introduce our members (both men and women) to leading, talented female role models, containing both men and women from the tech sector. The speakers at these events will not only inspire us to Stay at work, but also equip us with tools to both Advance and Lead in our professions.
