Come along to Barclays Eagle Lab on Tuesday 11th June where we’ll exploring how to get in and get on in tech.

With a focus on social mobility, our speakers will be sharing how you can understand and overcome barriers to develop your skills and also encourage positive change by giving back to the community. Whatever your background, academic discipline, skillset – there are many ways you can get into tech and progress your career.

With diversity and inclusion at the forefront of #YETNorth, our goal is to connect the technology and digital industry to the outside world, through learning, sharing initiatives and having the opportunity to hear and see role models from under-represented groups in tech.

Whether you’re working in tech already, or are thinking of making the leap, #YETNorth events are about coming together to learn from others in this space - and meeting new people who can support and champion you in your career.

We'll be joined by:
Sharon Amesu, Chair of the Institute of Directors / Professional Speaker
