About the event

The tech industry is suffering.

As a remote-first, ever-evolving, male-dominated, redundancy-heavy, overworked workforce – more needs to be done to ensure this industry is supported.

A report from AppDynamics stated that 80% of tech professionals indicated that their jobs have become more complex since the pandemic.

With 89% of tech professionals reported that they feel immense pressure at work and 84% found difficulty switching off from work.

Join us on May 16th, in collaboration with Two Pints Deep and aligning with MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, where we’re bringing together a panel of professionals from across the tech landscape to discuss topics such as burnout, poor workplace culture, imposter syndrome & remote working challenges.

This event is tailored towards culture setters within the tech industry, so if you are a Founder, HR professional or even on the culture committee – we would love to see you there!
