Personal and professional development

Personal development and career advancement are closely linked. Personal improvement is one of the most popular strategies for professional promotion and progression.

Networking is a vital tool for career development. This is not only true in terms of having access to opportunities - with more than 70% of job opportunities filled through personal networks instead of advertising - but also in such a rapidly changing sector as technology, networking gives you the ability to stay ahead of the curve.

Building connections with others outside your organisation can give you a fresh perspective on how to overcome common challenges and allow you to learn about emerging technologies and business strategies. 

We make connecting with other members across our community simple and fun through:

  • Our online private members forum
  • Regular in-person meetups across the UK
  • Weekly community coffee chats
  • Communities of practice



Women in Technology Mentoring Programme

Looking to take your career to the next level? Join our Women in Technology Mentoring Programme where all members can benefit from:

  • Our growing network of well over 2,000 members 
  • The self-serve platform Guider, which matches mentees and mentors based on location, skills and goals 
  • Developing soft skills, such as communication and confidence 

Our mentors come from a mix of tech and non-tech backgrounds and can support you with personal and professional development, and growing your technical skills.

Many of our mentees have become mentors themselves. Being a mentor offers its own set of benefits in terms of professional and personal development. You learn by fostering a mentoring relationship with someone with a different perspective to yours, both developing as a leader, and expanding your own CV in the process.

Join the community

So far, we have 2,000 community members, join our network of like-minded individuals for personal development or to help with the development of your team.
