Celebrating new and diverse talent at Birmingham Tech Week

Birmingham Tech Week 2020

We are delighted to be taking part in Birmingham Tech Week (BTW) from 12 – 16 October 2020. BTW is a fantastic opportunity to show why the region is leading the way when it comes to innovation, offering a series of inspirational and though-provoking events which showcase the very best of the region’s talent. 

In collaboration with Innovation Alliance West MidlandsGBSLEP and TIN Smart Social we are taking part in two events which celebrate the future of diversity in our region: Birmingham Tech 2030. Featuring a series of fantastic speakers and panelists – including recent and current Digital Innovators’ students – we hope to tackle the answers to these important questions: 

  • What’s happening now to support the diverse talent pool of the future? 
  • Who are the emerging heroes for our next generation to be inspired by? 
  • What barriers do we need to overcome to ensure diversity is a given not a challenge by Birmingham Tech 2030?
