The Relatable Female Tech Role Model - Where Is She?

Camila Diaz

Head of Product Design & Research @ Moonpig

Everyone acknowledges the importance of having relatable role models for our career and personal development but unfortunately, we live in a society that lacks diversity in positions of power and influence making it harder to find good examples we can look up to.

As Marian Wright Edelman once put it “you can’t be what you can’t see”. It’s all too easy to get lost when you don’t know where you want to get to.
In this talk, I share the tools and techniques I've used in order to figure out my own career path in the absence of relatable role models and that helped me stay inspired to this day.

Key Takeaways:

  • How inspiration can come from many places, not just role models
  • You don’t need to be in Leadership in order to help other women rise above
  • How not having a plan is the best way to get nowhere

Low-Code/No-Code: Was it Worth Learning to Code?

Engineers are high in demand and expensive, so naturally there have been attempts to short-circuit this business need in the form of low-code/no-code technology. Will these products put engineers out of business or can they actually benefit engineering teams? You will leave this talk armed with potential use cases for these products as well as warnings of things to consider when you use them. I hope you will give them a try for your next side hustle!

Key Takeaways:

  • Regardless of your technical background, learn the tools that can enable you to build tech, be it websites, mobile apps or APIs.
  • The benefits such tools offer developer teams by making experimenting cheaper and saving time on boring, repetitive tasks.
  • Understand the limitations these tools have in scalability and customisation.

How to Market Yourself in Your Organisation With Authenticity

Head of Technology, Experience @ Marks & Spencer

While there is no “I” in team, there is a “you” in your career. How many times do you struggle to get the promotion or the role opportunity because you don’t want to take credit for the work the team does? How do you make sure senior leaders know who you are and what you contribute in a way that feels natural and easy?

It can often jar with our natural instincts and can feel a little bit fake when you need to make sure leaders in your organisation see & importantly know your name & the skills you bring. The purpose of this session is to have an open discussion and opportunity to “practice” those conversations demonstrating the value you add to a team and an organisation in a way that is natural and honest – giving you the tools to take an active part in shaping your career.

Key Takeaways:

  • What do we mean by authenticity & what does it mean for you
  • How to create the conversations you want to have to share the stories of your achievements confidently and authentically
  • What you can do to drive change in your career in the way you want

Target Audience: This session is for those who don’t yet feel ready to ask for that 121 with your CTO/ leadership team but want to. This is for anyone in junior-middle management roles who are looking for ways to take their career to the next level in technology.

Product people and analysts are often tasked with creating compelling cases for strategic decisions.

Seri will run through how to create a CV that stands out from others in a similar role and give a few tips on how you can add something special to your cover letters.

There’s no one way to make a great CV, but with a few tried and true tools, you’ll be more confident that you’re presenting real evidence for why you’re the right candidate.

AI Ethics: What Are the Realities for Businesses?

Jessica Lennard

Senior Director, Global Data & AI Initiatives @ VISA

AI has been called “the new electricity”, so significant are its potential ...

AI has been called “the new electricity”, so significant are its potential transformative effects on societies and economies. But very real risks exist, including around security, accountability, privacy, bias and exclusion. Every data point represents something about someone’s life or business, something that really happened; and automated decisions can, and will, have a very real impact on our lives. Many companies are just beginning to face the complexities of tackling these risks and there are no “right answers”.

How can organisations implement strong governance and ethical, responsible approaches to data and AI? What does the journey to get there really look like in practice?

Key Takeaways:

  • Realising the benefits of AI depends on building consumer trust
  • Understanding consumer attitudes to data and AI through research is a critical part of the journey.
  • How to consider your company's ethics and culture, as well technology, governance and processes.
  • Going beyond the legal requirements and establishing organisational values can be a turning point in the journey.

Target Audience: Geared towards any business seeking to leverage the power of data responsibly; regulatory policy or governmental audiences seeking insights about how businesses are trying to achieve best practice in this space; or anyone interested in privacy, technology, and ethics.

The Boardroom Matters - Brotopia

Fiona Hathorn

CEO & Managing Director @ Women on Boards UK

McKinsey's latest research shows we have made progress with regards to women on FTSE 350 boards but very little progress has been made below the board (executive level). The research is now clear - to make progress we need to start earlier, supporting and enabling younger women, within companies.

During this talk I will share how to get women interested and actively involved in the boardroom, with knowledge of committees and why the role of the board, is absolutely vital. I'll share inspiration on why you are NEVER TOO YOUNG to know about the boardroom because it matters. Taking on small boards earlier in your career is not only a CV differentiator but also puts you at the top of organisations, way before you might get the opportunity within your firm.

Key Takeaways:

  • Benefits of the boardroom
  • Introduction to the VC industry and how to get involved
  • The affect of AI has and how it will change everything
