On Wednesday 10th April, WBG in partnership with the Fawcett Society – hosted a roundtable discussion on the perceived barriers stopping women in the UK from joining the tech industry, drawing upon an independent HP commissioned study to find out why the industry struggles to attract women and what can be done to help.

Hosted by George Brasher and chaired by Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society, the roundtable was attended by policymakers, business figures, media and young women. The discussions from the roundtable have been included in a report. 

This report was published in partnership with Fawcett and supported by Unite the Union.

In it you will find:

  • An executive summary of our key findings and recommendations to make the Sheffield City Region better address women’s employment and access to public services
  • Key findings and analysis on representation, employment and skills, caring roles, childcare, transport, safety in public spaces, and homelessness
