Date and Time:
Thu 28 Apr 2016
This lecture, the second of the Cantor Technology Lecture Series, outlines the importance to British industry of having a gender diverse workforce, particularly in technology roles.
Gillian Arnold explores some of the reasons why women only make up approximately 17% of technology roles, and what British companies need to do to effect change and capitalise on the benefits that diversity can bring.
The Cantor Technology Lecture Series seeks to provide a forum for academics, students, experts in their fields and the public to discuss areas of work of the University and their relation to society.
