It was very insightful and educational. I believe it gave me more confidence for when i apply for future roles and placements. Hearing about other women's experiences within this field inspired me to look into other roles and sectors that I may not have considered before.

It was a brilliant event - particularly the panel session. Listening to successful women speaking about their experiences in the technology industry was really motivating, especially when they spoke on certain topics including imposter syndrome and the unique challenges women face being in a male-dominated industry.
