Westcoast are proud to sponsor the Women in Tech festival. We are passionate about our channel and the people that work in it. In a male dominated industry we want to support a change in the status quo and work to encouraging women to join our industry whilst celebrating those building careers already!
Being part of these conversations and sharing best practices with women in our channel, we would hope to raise awareness, make a change and close this subject as a talking point in the future.
