Diversity in Technology 2018

Our CEO Diane Lightfoot is pleased to be speaking at this event.

Diversity in Technology is brought to you by the creators of the world’s largest Women in Tech event series. We empower individuals and assist companies in reshaping their culture to improve equality.

Diversity and inclusion is one of the biggest challenges facing the tech industry today, from the talent pipeline to products and services.

When businesses consist of people from the same backgrounds, they often leave diverse ideas, perspectives and considerations by the wayside. Those with visible and invisible disabilities, those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those who don’t fit the status quo are often left out.

This conference will connect and empower people from minority groups, provide insight into ground breaking technologies, and enable organisations to build truly diverse and inclusive cultures.

Our CEO Diane Lightfoot will be taking part in the panel discussion: How to Create an Inclusive World in a Non-Inclusive World


  • Jacky Wright - Chief Digital and Information Officer @ HMRC
  • Steven Cox - VP @ Fujitsu
  • Diane Lightfoot - CEO @ Business Disability Forum
  • Jenny Fallover - London City Director @ Lesbians Who Tech

Building an inclusive mind-set is essentially laying the foundation for a company's entire culture. There are nuanced ways to approach support for diversity and inclusion in the workplace. If we can become more disciplined and precise in learning how to create and maintain diversity in the right ways, this will make for a more prosperous and productive economy in the future. Everybody knows we need to have a more diverse workforce, but the question is how? This session will discuss the ways we can tackle the diversity issue head on.
