Identifying opportunities for women in the digital sector, and encouraging them to consider these roles.
Women in Leeds Digital (WiLD) is a community led initiative, focussed on both creating and highlighting activity that encourages women & diversity groups to consider digital roles. Currently women make up only 17% of the digital workforce, and if technology is going to be truly representative of society, this needs addressing sooner rather than later.
WiLD aims to educate soon to be graduates, recent graduates, those in early stage careers and those returning to the workforce on the wide spectrum of opportunities within the sector. We do this through a range of activities, not least of all; highlighting the incredible people already working in digital across the region.
