With 2018 becoming such a key year for highlighting gender diversity and equal opportunity issues in both business and public worlds, the BCS North London Branch, led by Dalim Basu, decided to run a series of events, labelled `Wominspiration' for all those wanting to know more about gender diversity and equal opportunities in IT.

Dalim now brings Wominspiration to Kent.

Situation: The world of technology is growing fast, and bringing benefits to many people. There is room for many more trainees, skilled IT people and leaders?

Problem: Relatively few women are working in IT and Technology.

Opportunity: Encourage and inspire more girls and women to try IT careers and leadership.

Action: Raise awareness, start with ?WOMINSPIRATION?

Come to this interactive session to discuss this important issue.
