Mills & Reeve, alongside Deloitte and Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP), is delighted to be launching “Inspiring Women in Technology”, a new series of events for women working in the tech sector.

At each event you can:

  • hear from inspiring women in technology about their experiences, including the challenges and opportunities they have faced in their careers
  • take away practical tips to inspire you in your career in tech
  • network and discuss relevant issues with others working in the tech sector over drinks.

The events are not exclusive to women and everyone is welcome.

We’ll be joined at our launch event by inspiring women who are leading the way in technology:

Zandra Moore, will talk about the challenges and opportunities she has faced to become CEO and cofounder of Panintelligence, including what initiatives technology companies can adopt to encourage more women in technology. She’ll also discuss her passion for inspiring more women to get into tech.

Maria Hernandez, a 2018 TechWomen100 winner, will talk about her own experiences as head of innovation at Cisco and her work in the technology sector, including progressing projects that advance digital adoption such as IoT and cybersecurity. Maria will share her thoughts on finding ways to encourage more female talent into the technology world and how we can create a new generation of female engineers, cybersecurity professionals and coders.

MSP has been helping to grow Manchester’s knowledge economy for over 30 years, with a current portfolio of over 200 science and technology companies. Anne Dornan, head of innovation and partnerships, will be providing an insight into it’s newest incubator space, our host venue for the event, and the impact it has had since launching in Spring 2018.
