27 August 2021

PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, announces its Women in Tech network has partnered with WeAreTechWomen, in a collaboration that will further boost the network’s efforts to diversify the workforce and increase the number of women working in the tech industry. Women in Tech is a passionate team of women from across PA, who work to ensure the future is more diverse, inclusive and benefits everyone.

The partnership will enable PA’s Women in Tech network to access WeAreTechWomen’s wealth of resources, helping to support PA’s own offering, such as its coding courses and community meetups. Both organisations are dedicated to enhancing the careers of women working in tech and supporting initiatives that encourage young girls to pursue STEM careers. The collaboration also further allows PA’s Women in Tech network to support those women who wish to return to – or make a career change into - the tech industry.

Teresa Stephenson, Women in Tech external relationships lead at PA Consulting said: “We’re so excited to partner with WeAreTechWomen as their focusses and goals align perfectly with our own at PA’s Women in Tech. Both organisations are passionate about raising the profile of women in the industry and helping our teams attract, retain, and develop their female tech talent. We hope this partnership can help boost our respective efforts.”
