What we're about

Welcome to Motherboard.

< MotherBoard is a community, meetup series & charter that has been created to drive positive change throughout the UK Technology and Data sectors. Creating environments that support the inclusion of working mothers offers a significant solution to the shortage of talent across the Technology and Data sectors. We’re here to educate, challenge and create that shift. We’re not here to berate, we’re here to connect, embrace and champion positive change-makers.

Our community is open to all. Mothers working in tech, organisations who are up-skilling returners back into work as well as employers that are consciously looking to create inclusive programmes to attract all women, including mothers into their Technology and Data teams. We actively encourage females, males and non-binary folk to join us and to get involved. >

We also have an exclusive whatsapp group for mums working within tech & data. Whether you are a software engineer, a project manager, a head of tech etc, this group is to offer, provide and receive support around issues that individuals are having as mums within tech. This is a safe space for questions, where you will not be judged. We hope that meaningful mentorship and ‘buddy up’ peer to peer relationships will be created through this community group that will support women develop within their careers. If you would like to join the group, please contact Sophie Creese on sophie@adlib-recruitment.co.uk
