Women in Tech “Stay, Advance, Lead”


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,  and panels containing both men and women from the tech sector. The speakers and panels 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.


Previous speakers include Prof. Geraldine Boylan, INFANT, Sinead McSweeney, Senior Director, Public Policy, EMEA @Twitter, Margaret E Ward, Entrepreneur, Journalist and Broadcaster, Niamh Bushnell, Dublin Commissioner for Start-Ups and Muiris O’Connor, Head of Policy & Strategic Planning at the HEA
