  • Participants:

    • Silvia Cambie – Europe Leader for Watson Ecosystem and ISV at IBM
    • Moderator – David Terrar – Director & Deputy Chair at Cloud Industry Forum
  • The backdrop in today’s digital landscape:
    • We are in the 4th industrial revolution, a period of rapid technological change where every company is becoming a technology company and a media company alongside what they do
    • The digital tech sector is buoyant and expanding 2.6 times faster than the rest of the UK
    • Worth nearly £184bn to the UK economy – up from £170bn in 2016
  • A recent Tech Nation survey shows:
    • Women make up 19% of the workforce, compared to 49% for all jobs.
    • Ethnic diversity in digital tech jobs is above the UK average, at 15% vs 10%, yet still unrepresentative
  • Our speakers add in some of their own experiences and we discuss the issues, challenges, role models and potential solutions
