PART OF THE WOMEN IN INNOVATION AND INVENTION WORKSHOP
Date: Wed 29th November 2006 15:00 Women have been major players in shaping the Information Technology, Electronics and Communications (ITEC) industries through their skills and innovation. Despite this women are currently under-represented in the sector. As a result a range of schemes are in place, for example, to address the needs of women at higher skills levels who have taken a career break, or have experienced a period of unemployment and find the return to the workplace difficult. This workshop will highlight the achievement of women innovators and inventors in the ITEC industries, explore the pleasures and pitfalls of working in the industry, as well as giving practical advice to both those at earlier stages of their careers or returning after career breaks.
