Women in Tech

Promoting diversity through inspirational learning opportunities and events

Gender diversity is a serious challenge in the technology industry: women hold only 25 per cent of tech jobs. And this is steadily getting worse, despite the number of technology jobs increasing rapidly over the years. Without diverse representation, technology solutions risk excluding women, presenting a huge problem for business and society alike. We know diversity produces the best results.  

The PA Women in Tech (WiT) drives awareness of this issue and turns thinking into action. We're a passionate team of women from across the firm who use our experience to ensure the future of technology is more diverse, inclusive and benefits everyone. We do this by providing learning and development opportunities, building supportive communities of engaged women, industry partners and allies, and ensuring our recruitment activities promote equal opportunities and remove barriers to entry for women.

what's next?

Here at Women in Tech we are always busy organising the next event. In 2021 we have run multiple events, some of which with other big tech firms, and trained over 120 women and non-binary with our coding courses. We have 4 core pillars at the heart of our strategy:

  • Learning & development: we run coding courses in both Web Development and Python Programming, and additional sessions / events on soft & hard skills
  • Community: we provide opportunities for thought-leadership, event speaking and mentorship to our members
  • Recruitment & retention: we run our famous mentorship scheme, and attend career fairs across the UK. If you see us, come and say hi!
  • Partnerships: we partner with external companies to support each other in diversifying the technology industry
