About the event

Burns Sheehan hosted an in-person intimate roundtable on International Women's Day, where Engineering leaders combined their knowledge and experiences and discussed why there is still a lack of women in technology, specifically within leadership roles, as well as explored the practical steps we can take towards encouraging the next generation of female technologists.

Date & Time: Wednesday 8th March 9am

Location: Burns Sheehan London Office

Refreshments: a breakfast spread with tea, coffee, juices & pastries

This was an intimate event, giving our attendees the opportunity to expand their networks and bounce ideas off of other seasoned engineering leaders in the tech community.

Throughout this year so far, we have had some interesting conversations with our network, yet one particular topic that stood out again and again: the lack of diversity and female representatives amongst Engineering Leaders and Leaders in Tech. To help create tangible and insightful action plans, we have brought together leaders from various tech and engineering-focused backgrounds from the likes of The Financial Times, Unmind, Gousto, Vodafone, Fluro, Healios, CBRE & Cazoo to share their thoughts, advice and challenges.


We explored:

💡 How to encourage diversity and inclusivity from grass root levels.

💡 How we can encourage more diversity and inclusivity in our business.

💡 Increasing visibility & access to role models & allies.

💡 Navigating Leadership level as a woman & overcoming common challenges.
