Skills Development Scotland are working with a range of partners to deliver a programme to inspire girls to consider careers in the digital sector.
In March, 36 girls are participating in a three day programme of visits, talks with role models, and “hands on” activities with employers Edinburgh College and Heriot Watt University.
The girls will:
- Hear about varied and interesting career opportunities in this growth sector
- Speak to women working in digital and information technology
- Be encouraged to explore diverse career pathways including Modern Apprenticeship and degree routes
We are looking for volunteers to support these activities by coming along and speaking to girls in a speed networking session on Tuesday 15th March from 2pm in central Edinburgh.
If you are a woman working in the tech industry and you’d like to help, please contact Nicola Swan firstname.lastname@example.org
