LADIES OF CODE, LEEDS
Are you a lady? Do you code? Are you searching for a similar bunch of ladies to discuss code with? Ladies of Code is the place for you. This group meet monthly to hear talks from leaders in the field and hack whilst developing their code-fu in the process.
What if I don’t code?
They are going to be discussing some pretty in-depth, geeky stuff. If you are not deterred by that and are still really excited about coming, you’re more than welcome. Find out more information here.
A big part of the magazine's business is networking the right people together. They believe in strong networking events especially available to mid to senior level women. After seeing so many events aimed at women being low-level events, the team identified a gap in the sector for senior networking events that add genuine value. MMB now run a number of senior private lunches, as well as their annual MMB lunch, and Senior HR lunches. All of these are 'by invite only', ensuring the right people are at the table.
