International Women’s Day: Making IT Happen for Women

Sunday March 8th 2015

Gender diversity still poses a major challenge in the IT industry, with women making up less than 20 per cent of the IT workforce and the number in senior positions remaining stubbornly low. How can we #MakeItHappen?

How can we get more women into senior positions? How can we encourage talented women and girls to consider IT as a serious career option alongside Medicine or Law?

At this event we will explore the power of networks in enabling women to play an equal part in the IT workplace. We seek to raise awareness among women and girls of networks within the community and within companies such as the BCS, Deloitte and the BBC and to ask questions about how they work and what successes have been achieved.

Some are skeptical about women-only networks saying these groups are often used “more to placate women than to promote them” or express doubt that women’s networking groups “can help a young woman break into the boy’s club.”

The number of women in key roles in the technology industry has remained roughly unchanged for 10 years, according to a recent Gartner report. Will it remain the same for the next 10 years? How can we make IT happen for women?

In the tradition of Manchester Girl Geeks, this event will be fun and highly interactive including debate, flash talks and panel sessions.

Latest updates follow, look out for some exciting speakers. Come along and share your experiences, get some pointers for your own career.

Årets Girl Geek ble i år delt ut for første gang under den årlige Rosing-konferansen i Oslo, der også flere priser ble delt ut.

Rosing-prisene tildeles mennesker som har gjort seg bemerket i det norske IT-miljøet, og har siden 1991 løftet fram grûndere, toppledere, programmerere og webutviklere i kategorier som Årets Toppleder, Kreativitetsprisen, Studentprisen, Årets nettsted og Språkprisen for å nevne noen.

Dataforeningen og Rosing-prisen ønsker å synliggjøre flere kvinner i IT og har inngått samarbeid med Girl Geek Dinner-nettverket i Norge om å løfte fram kvinner som har gjort seg særlig merkbare innenfor IT gjennom Årets Girl Geek, den første i sitt slag i Norge.

Prisen Årets Girl Geek 2014 er også det første nasjonale samarbeidet mellom nettverkene som har vokst seg fram i Norge; i Kristiansand, Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim og Østfold. Gjennom en åpen nominasjonsrunde der nærmere 40 nominasjoner kom inn, har juryen kommet fram til seks finalister som nå skal stemmes fram.

Upcoming Event: Girl Geek Tea Party #47 – Mince Pi (Raspberry Pi Party)

Sunday, 14 December 2014 from 14:00 to 16:00

AutoTrader Offices, Number 1 First Street, 4th Floor, M15 4FN Manchester [Map]

Tickets £3.14 – sign up now to get yours here.

For our December event, we’re teaming up with various Raspberry Pi organisations around Manchester to put together a Raspberry Pi-themed afternoon of fun!

OK, but what is Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse.

This tiny device enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program. Find out more about Raspberry Pi here.

mcrraspjamWe’ll have a range of different activities to have a go at, including building a Raspberry Pi, using it to make noises, building a weather monitoring station and more.

As we get more details confirmed, we’ll add them here.

If you own a Raspberry Pi, we’d love for you to bring it along and use it for the different activities.

If you don’t, we have a limited number of places available for people to borrow a Pi to use on the day, if they can’t bring one. If you were thinking of getting one, here’s your excuse!

We’ll also be holding a ‘Show & Tell’ for people who’ve done something cool with their Pi – maybe you’d like to show us something awesome you’ve made in Minecraft or Scratch, or your cool Raspberry Pi case mod, or a project you’re working on that’s Pi-based.

Please let us know if you think you’d like to show something off – it doesn’t have to be very good! It’s all about sharing our experience, and you may be able to get some pointers as to where to take it next.

As usual, we’ll have tea, coffee, squash and baked goods – if you feel inspired to create an R-Pi themed cake, biscuit or other delicious treat, we’d love to see it! Although let’s be honest, we’d really love to eat it.

Save the date: EU Code Week 11-17 October 2014

Bring your ideas to life with #coding

The second edition of EU Code Week will take place 11-17 October 2014.
Millions of children, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and policy makers will come together
in mass events and classrooms to learn programming and related skills.
The idea is making coding more visible, demystify these skills, and bring motivated people
together to learn.
Go to http://codeweek.eu to learn more and find your nearest event

This is a grassroots initiative by young advisers to Neelie Kroes, and has attracted the
support of coding and education movements like CoderDojo and RailsGirls and of major tech
and IT companies who are all helping bring coding to millions of children for example by
offering coding taster sessions, by developing learning modules and helping to train
teachers . Companies including Rovio (Angry Birds), Microsoft, Google, Telefonica, Liberty
Global and Facebook are backing EU Code Week, many of them as part of their commitment
to the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes says: “Our lives are digital now, so the
younger generations in particular need digital skills like coding. In the near future it will be
critical for good jobs and essential for starting a business.

Alja Isakovic, from Slovenia, one of the organisers of Code Week EU says: “Technology is
shaping our lives and we should not let a minority decide what we use it for and how we
use it. We all can do better than just sharing and liking. With coding you can bring your
ideas to life, make and build things that will bring joy to others.”

How can you participate in EU Code Week?
• Kids/teenagers/adults can participate in coding events
• Coders can organise workshops in local schools, hack spaces or community centres
• Teachers who code can hold coding classes, share their lessons plans, organise
workshops for colleagues
• Teachers who don’t code can organise seminars or invite parents or students to
teach each other coding
• Parents can encourage their kids to participate in a coding workshop
• Businesses and non-profit organisations can host coding workshops, lend their
staff as coaches in a “back-to-coach” action, organise fun coding challenges for
students or offer sponsorship for coding events
• Everyone who participates in a coding activity can tell us about their experience and
inspire others!

Why is coding important?
Each and every interaction between humans and computers is governed by code. Whether
you create a web app, follow GPS directions when driving or wish to revolutionize social
interactions. Programming is everywhere and fundamental to the understanding of a hyperconnected
world.

Basic coding skills will also be needed for many jobs in the nearest future. More than 90%
of professional occupations nowadays require some ICT competence. Moreover, ICT
practitioners are a key pillar of the modern workforce across all sectors of the European
economy, with demand growing annually by 3% and the number of graduates from
computer science not keeping pace. As a result many open vacancies for ICT practitioners
cannot be filled, despite the high level of unemployment in Europe. If we do not
appropriately address this issue at a European and national level, we may face a shortage
of up to 900,000 ICT professionals by 2020.

Making ICT careers more attractive is one of the objectives of the European initiative
“Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs”, a European multi-stakeholder partnership that aims at
facilitating cooperation among business, education providers, public and private actors to
address the mismatch in digital skills in the European labour market also by modernising
education.

UK: Calling all cyber security girl geeks!

Listen up girls – how would you like the chance to flex your cyber security skills by playing exciting competitions designed by industry leaders like HP, Sophos and Cassidian? What about the chance to win career-enhancing prizes like IT training programmes or even a trip to the top-secret Government Communications Headquarters?

Let us introduce you to Cyber Security Challenge UK – a series of national competitions designed to give you a taste of what it’s like to be a cyber security professional and inspire you to get involved in the ever-expanding industry.

Now in its third year of competitions , the Challenge is on a mission to spread the word about why cyber security is such a fulfilling and varied career and help talented people get their first cyber security jobs. It is sponsored by some of the UK’s most prestigious public, private and academic organisations who design competitions and offer once-in-a-lifetime prizes.

Cyber crime costs the UK government an estimated £27 billion every year, affecting everyone from large corporations to SMEs to the individual woman on the street. The threat is growing – Jonathan Evans, MI5 Director General recently highlighted cyber attacks as one of four top global risks to UK. This means it is even more important to get the most talented techies in place to protect our online networks.

As we all know, the IT industry sometimes struggles to represent the hundreds of talented and skilled women in its community – cyber security is not altogether different. But, we also know, you are out there! Now is your chance to  prove just how good your technical skills are by taking part in one of Cyber Security Challenge UK’s competitions and get your hands on over £100,000 worth of educational, career enabling prizes such as internships and training courses. Oh and spread the work to all the other girlie geeks you know!

All you need to do is register online to receive updates on new competitions: https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/registration/

Agenda Digitale: ecco il documento ufficiale

L’annuncio è arrivato poche decine di minuti un paio di ore fa attraverso un twit di Michele Ficara Manganelli, classe 1966, esperto di comunicazione digitale e fondatore di Assodigitale. E noi siamo pronti ad accogliere

al volo la notizia e diffonderla.

Agenda Digitale, ecco il documento ufficiale semidefinitivo (come suggerisce Fabio Malagnino, Consiglio Regionale del Piemonte) della cabina di regia. La presentazione che ne riassume i contenuti è stata condivisa su slideshare ed è scaricabile qui.

Ho dato solo una lettura veloce al testo, che mi riprometto di esaminare con maggiore attenzione. Intanto vorrei mettere qui in evidenza gli aspetti che mi hanno colpita di più.

In sintesi, accanto alle informazioni delle prime pagine, noto intanto che a pag. 8 e 9 si prevede la consultazione social su alcuni aspetti (è previsto che si possa intervenire attivamente, pare, anche presentando istanze e proposte).

A pag. 13 si evidenziano gli obiettivi e i tempi di realizzazione delle infrastrutture per banda larga, banda larga ultraveloce e sicurezza.

Girl Geek Dinners Mentoring Programme

We have just set up a mentoring programme.  We would love to get those of you who are interested in finding a mentor or being a mentor connected. We hope that we’ve asked all the right questions and with any luck this programme will grow over time and support those of you within the Girl Geek Dinners network!

Longer term we will look to formalise the tools and remove some of the manual matching steps but in the meantime bear with us.  We look forward to inspiring and encouraging you all and fostering an awesome network of women in the IT industry.
