Transforming Work-Culture For All To Thrive

With overwhelm, burnout and resignation increasing, it is critical we UPlift Women Working In Tech and hear their ideas to create the future workplace!

As part of the it@cork techfest 2022, 65 employees and leaders from across Ireland attended an in person dialogue to Uplift Women In Tech.

The Business School in Trinity College Dublin partnered on the dialogue research. Discover here all the findings and insights from the dialogue.

Highlights From The Dialogue

On May 24th, 65 people from 33 companies, as part of it@cork techfest, engaged in dialogue exploring what stops women in tech thrive in work and blocks fulfillment.

The numbers regarding women in tech are stark and showcasing that a new approach is needed to retain women in tech and attract those that have left back. Leaders are curious to try new approaches to uncover new ideas.

Safe Space

A safe and inclusive space was created where the women could voice the real issues and surface the hidden blind-spots holding them back. The process allowed for collective clarity on solutions that would have a real impact.
