On the morning of Monday 20th June 2016, at the start of LONDON TECH WEEK, TLA WOMENINTECH hosted an exclusive VIP Market Open Ceremony and Panel Event at the London Stock Exchange to set the tone of advocating for inclusivity and affect meaningful change in London's thriving tech ecosystem.
The amazing line-up included warm welcome from TLA WOMENINTECH co-founders Sarah Luxford & Nikki Watkins and the inspiring Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas DBE, followed by a fabulous Diversity Keynote from Baroness Oona King. Delegates were then called to participate in an incredibly well received Executive Workshop on Unconcious Bias led by leading Diversity Coach, Nikki Watkins.
The workshop was followed by two provocative and lively Panel Sesssions moderated by top industry experts Shivvy Jarvis and Susanne Chishti. The panel explored hot topics like 'What will it take for us ALL to advocate for inclusivity?' and'What challenges do female founders & CEOs in technology face when raising all forms of capital? Are VC’s/PE/Corporate better than banks and what lessons can be shared on getting funded?'
A buzzing Networking Lunch for Corporates, Entrepreneurs, TLA WOMENINTECH Advocates and TLA Scale Ups was then enjoyed by all.
