Connecting Women in Technology #CWTNetworking

CWTConnecting Women in Technology (CWT) is a cross industry network, which includes Avaya, Cisco, Dell, Google, HP, IBM, Intel and Microsoft.

The network collaborates to encourage women to find role models and mentors, share best practice through networking, and provide a supportive environment to connect. CWT’s purpose is to send a strong message to the market that IT is an attractive place for women to work.

When I first jumped off the corporate train, I was surprised to notice the interest/curiosity that my gender could create in the start-up world. I’ve since come to realise that the interest/curiosity usually multiplies when it is revealed that my start-up is a tech one!

So, big thumbs up to CWT Smile 

CWT are hosting their 13th event: Professional Networking – Building Your Online Network and Managing Your Social Media Presence, this Wednesday, at Intel. I am delighted to feature as their keynote speaker, in a line-up that includes:
