Join us for a panel discussion on this year's IWD theme, "Press for Progress", with an inspiring group of women representing some of the Scotland Women in Technology Awards 2017 finalists.

We are delighted that our speakers will include Talat Yaqoob from Equate, Jude McCorry from The Data Lab, and Ilana Munckton from Skyscanner. Each of our speakers will give us a short talk about themselves, and their take on #PressForProgress, and we'll follow with a panel discussion led by Sharon Moore. The event will also be hosted by Employer of the Year finalist, Sopra Steria.
