Technocamps launches its brand new Network for Women Working in STEMPublished on 12 January 2020
The year 2019 saw the launch of Technocamps new Role Model Network for women working in STEM, in association with Women in Tech Cymru.
The aim of the network is to establish connections between women working within the sector (technology in particular) with regular meetups to learn from each other’s experience in the workplace and to support and inspire those on an early career path.
So far there have been two events taking place in Swansea and Pontypridd, and it is hoped that we can grow the network with events in all the Welsh regions planned over the coming months.
Technocamps encourages network members to get involved with the project. We can now offer opportunities for individuals, companies, and other organisations to engage with young people by developing a strong role-model network to support the work we do in schools.
"It was a very inspirational evening and I left feeling in awe of all of the strong speakers.”
Corrine John, University of South Wales
It is common to think that once you have a full-time job, your education stops. Here at Technocamps and the Institute of Coding in Wales, we believe that learning is a continuous process that you can pursue at any stage of life.
When Bryn Tawe School IT teacher Rhun Llwyd booked the Technocamps team in to undertake STEM enrichment workshops with his pupils, little did he know that the sessions would inspire him into a whole new educational journey of his own.
