By our city, for our city
Women in Leeds Digital (WiLD) is a community led initiative, focussed on both creating and highlighting activity that encourages women & diversity groups to consider digital roles. Currently women make up only 17% of the digital workforce, and if technology is going to be truly representative of society, this needs addressing sooner rather than later.
WiLD aims to educate soon to be graduates, recent graduates, those in early stage careers and those returning to the workforce on the wide spectrum of opportunities within the sector. We do this through a range of activities, not least of all; highlighting the incredible people already working in digital across the region.
WiLD offers a range of training, consultancy and event led services. But more importantly than that, we highlight & celebrate the wide range of female led activity across the region. If you're looking to learn more about a career in digital, and let's face it in today's world who isn't, you've come to the right place.
WOMEN IN LEEDS DIGITAL CONFERENCE
Network - Encourage - Impact - Grow
‘The Women in Leeds Digital conference opened my eyes to the wide variety of digital roles out there, but more importantly than that I got to see young professionals from a range of disciplines & educational backgrounds doing those jobs. I’m now working in a tech job that I wouldn’t have gone for had it not been for the WiLD conference.’
- Rachel Fletcher, PMO (working toward SCRUM Master) at William Hill Tech Hub.
