#GirlTechWM 2021


The latest studies show that 37% of European women plan to work in a tech or digital environment, so how can we work together to reach young women with this information before they make decisions about their futures?

Following the success of two previous #GirlTechWM events with Millennium Point Trust, this year we are taking the experience for Year 8 girls across the West Midlands ONLINE.

This week-long festival will see young people from across the West Midlands take part in interactive workshops, guest speeches and panels to meet and ask female role models in the tech industry their questions, as well as give them a hands-on experience of what working in this sector is all about.

This year the festival will also include activities for young people (male and female) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
