Spreading the word
9 Jan 2019
On 29 January, Scotland Women in Technology and BCSWomen Scotland are coming together to host their first joint event of 2019.
The event, which will be held at the iconic Edinburgh headquarters of the Lloyds Banking Group, will feature two alumni of SFC’s data analysis summer internships. Laura Hepburn and Lily Samett will talk about their work with SFC’s Performance Measurement and Analysis Team and discuss the benefits of the internships for their own future careers and for the Scottish Funding Council.
Alongside Laura and Lily’s presentation, the event will provide opportunities for networking as well as the chance to find out more about the work of Scotland Women in Technology and BCS (British Computer Society) Women Scotland.
SFC’s Cathy Mitchell, who will introduce the presentation, said: “These two organisations are at the forefront of inspiring and supporting women in their careers in science and technology. It’s fantastic that they’re coming together to host this event and it’s great that the event will focus on SFC and its use of data. I’m really looking forward to introducing Laura and Lily’s talk and am sure it will be well received.”
The event is free and starts at 5:30pm. It can be booked via Eventbrite.
