17% - Banking on Diversity in Tech
On 2nd November, Lloyds Banking Group in association with Digital Leaders and Women in Banking and Finance will be running an afternoon conference, “17% - Banking on Diversity in Tech”.
This afternoon conference event will combine DL’s theme of building the nation’s Digital DNA, WIBF’s solution-oriented approach and LBG’s combined commitments to Digital Transformation and increasing the number of women in senior roles to 40% by 2020. The UK still has a lot of work to do as recent research revealed only 17% of employees in the UK tech sector are women.
This is an opportunity to re-examine the ‘leadership capabilities’ we’ll need for this world of transformation. This is an opportunity for future leadership to become more diverse, as well as more digitally-enabled and agile, but are we asking ourselves the right questions?
We will be discussing:
- With a focus on women, we want to inspire colleagues to create a truly digital environment, and ultimately a digital nation.
- Are we at risk of being exclusively inclusive? How can we recognise and prevent this?
- Identifying core solutions and actions for our networks and each of us as individuals to take forward to ensure women are at the forefront of digital transformation
- Transferring the understanding of key changes impacting digital leadership capability within banking and finance, with a focus on agile methodologies and how this can be an opportunity to unlock more diversity at senior levels
- Empowering all attendees to take an active role in the digital world we now live in, and we recognise that a key enabler of this is helping them to discover how they have a part to play.
The afternoon will include:
- A keynote speech from Jacqueline de Rojas – Advisor to Digital Leaders and President of techUK
- An inspirational panel of thought leaders discussing how we ensure that future digital leadership is truly inclusive
- An opportunity to engage in open debate in small breakout sessions led by experts in the industry
- A debate around how organisational and systemic changes could enhance career paths for women
- Networking including tea, coffee and cake
