Listen to Roisin and Rachel on MediaCom podcast

13th August 2018
Roisin McCarthy and Rachel Keane, Co-founders of WiD UK, were thrilled to record a podcast with MediaCom. Insight, purpose and humour. Listen to the background to the growth of Women in Data UK since 2015. WID UK’s objectives include encouragement and gender parity in data roles from entry level to board, which requires collaboration with men (not ‘beard bashing’). WiD UK cite a 12% uplift in female placements and the impact of the Twenty in Data and Technology awardees as role models among recent tangible successes. Roisin and Rachel were invited to talk about the growth of Women in Data UK, just at the time when this year’s 1000-delegate event was announced. Roisin and Rachel said, “There’s big need for forums, support and education for women in data. We are overjoyed with the success of Twenty Women in Data and Technology, co-promoted with The Female Lead, which we expect to surpass expectations this year. Most importantly, we are seeing signs of change, with more appointments of women in senior roles and the growing understanding that gender diversity translates to better business.” Stream the podcast here Download on iTunes

Women in Data UKTM has surpassed all expectations since its inaugural event in 2015

We have enjoyed 22 speakers of the highest calibre and seen the WiD UK community grow to 20,000. 12 of our WiD UK colleagues and participants were recognised in the DataIQ Big 100 this year. Our Chair, Payal Jain, was No1 Data Titan in 2016 and in 2018 is on the CW long-list for UK influential women in tech. In partnership with The Female Lead, we look forward to announcing the next Twenty in Data and Technology to act as role models, following the success of last year’s inaugural Twenty. Our growth has led to leading brands joining us as partners, to advance data and diversity initiatives in their own organisations, and to encourage women in the data sector at every stage of their careers from graduate to boardroom.

A reminder of what happened at WiD UK 2017

Why are ‘women’, ‘diversity’ and ‘motherhood’ still hot topics?
Laws ensure women are treated equally, so why do we need a women-only conference? Women in Data UK challenges the barriers that women still face in the technology sectors.
