The Women in Technology: Empowering Innovation series that aims to bring women in enabling technologies together to discuss the challenges they face throughout their career and share experiences.

Understanding funding opportunities and how to access them can be tricky. This session will help to dispel some of the myths and help to improve your funding application skills.

Enabling technology is helping to change our world, but how will the sector meet the needs of a diverse population if it is being shaped by a small section of society?

Gender imbalance in the technology industry is an issue, with only 5% of leadership positions held by women, and women less likely to consider a technology career than men (Pwc, Women in Tech Report). Recognising the important contributions of women as decision-makers, stakeholders, educators and experts across sectors and at all levels can lead to successful, long term solutions to development challenges, and we all must do more to ensure that the gender imbalance is addressed, accelerating the time it will take to truly create a more industry.

On the 3rd November 2020, KTN and E-Futures brought together women working in enabling technologies, such as electronics, sensors, photonics, RF and microwave and acoustics, to workshop and explore why we are not seeing more women in these sectors, to discuss barriers and the collective solutions we can take towards a more gender-balanced landscape.

Following the workshop, we’re proud to launch the Women in Technology: Empowering Innovation series that aims to bring women in enabling technologies together to discuss the challenges they face throughout their career and share experiences.

The series is designed to provide inspiration, practical advice and tools. Throughout the series, we will explore topics ranging from support to grow your business to funding and finance.
