Women in Technology is a website that aims to increase the number of women working in the UK’s technology profession.
Women in Technology hopes to put diversity at the forefront of companies’ recruitment and employment policies, in part by helping them recruit more female technologists, and since its launch in 2005 it has grown into a network of 7,000.
The outlet posts news and runs a blog but its key focus is on its recruitment service which encompasses a dedicated online IT job board, regularly hosting and co-hosting networking events, running personal development and career-orientated training courses, and providing information about matters affecting the IT industry and the people who work within it.
Online content and working with PR
Women in Technology only runs press releases with content that is specifically relevant to women working in IT, which may include issues connected to women working in technology, women in business or general technology stories.
The most recent news articles on the website report on a university award for women in science and tech, a company creating hundreds of IT jobs, a video games conference and a campaign to provide mentorship for women in technology. On the blog the latest post discusses tips for giving constructive feedback.
Managing director Maggie Berry says the outlet is happy to receive press releases by email that focus on women working in IT and closely related topics. The site has a career focus and as such doesn’t cover lifestyle topics. It also has an active presence on social media sites and can be found on Twitter (@womenintech or @womenintechjobs), LinkedIn and Facebook.
