Amplifying underrepresented voices in tech
The free course will provide twelve individuals from underrepresented groups with the skills and backing to go on to become the region's tech conference speakers, board members and mentors - bringing new insights, inspiring others and shifting the perceptions of who's out there in the cluster.

As well as an in-depth speaking and confidence course, the programme aims to connect participants with key figures within the region's thriving tech community at invite-only events - which comes with exclusive access to speaking opportunities, conferences, judging panels and more.

“The lack of diversity at events, senior roles and boardrooms merely shows one part of underrepresentation in the tech sector.

There are so many talented unrepresented voices in the industry who have the potential to make the Bristol & Bath’s tech sector even better, so we’re really happy to support SHIFT to celebrate diverse voices in our region.” Zara Nanu

“Diversity within the tech industry is a valuable commodity as it helps produce new ways of thinking and operating including boosting productivity, profitability as well as making companies stand out.” Marina Traversari
