IoD supports launch of the 2021 Women in Data Hackathon

  • Date 4 Oct 2021

The Institute of Directors is proud to be supporting TrueCue’s Women in Data Hackathon, which is now in its second instalment following a highly successful event last year.

The technology industry, although a hub for innovation and creativity, lags behind when it comes to the diversity of its workforce. Not only is this detrimental to women, who are missing out on the rewarding work available to them, but also to the industry itself.

As part of their campaign to provide information, advice and up-skilling opportunities to encourage women to seek careers in this exciting industry, TrueCue’s Women in Data Hackathon is an event in which participants team up to solve challenging problems with limited time. Participants will have the opportunity to improve their analytics capabilities and presentation skills, as well as speak to women working in the Tech industry.

The IoD is working with TrueCue to encouraging its members, and their connections, to participate in this event. Applications will open for participants and facilitators on Wednesday 6th October, with the Hackathon kicking-off on Thursday 11th November.
