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

How to choose a software coding course

Link visible for attendees

Welcome to MotherBoard!

There is a huge emphasis on how we can encourage more women and young girls to take up a career in tech, but as we have previously discussed there often isn't very much guidance on how to get from point A to point B from an education level.

We are seeing more and more women getting into tech later in life through coding courses. Coding boot camps offer a great way to get into software engineering, but each course tends to focus on different languages. How do you choose the right course for you? Which language is going to be best for the career you want? With business tech stacks being so varied we thought it would be a great idea to put together an event with speakers from some of the best coding courses available in the UK - this way we can hear first-hand what each course can offer and the careers paths that tend to follow.

Join us on Wednesday 22nd June at 12.30

We will be speaking with:

Efua Akumanyi – CTO – Coding Black Females
Jessica Silva Carvalho – Full Stack Developer & Lead Teacher – Le Wagon
Natasja Laurie – Software Engineer - A Million Ads & Lead Instructor – General Assembly

This is an online event, hosted on CrowdCast. We can’t wait to see you there!

  • 12.20 - CrowdCast room opens
  • 12.30pm - Event starts with a welcome from your meet-up organiser, Amber and an introduction to the panel.
  • 12.35pm – Panel talk with a range of tech leaders.
  • 13.20pm – Audience Q&A
  • 13.30pm – Event closes

The event will be recorded and will be available to view shortly afterwards.
