Delighted to be announced as a finalist in the 2019 FDM EveryWoman Tech Awards among many inspiring #WomenInTech 🤓 in the Rising Star category!
Looking forward to meeting other women in technology at the award show in March and am very grateful for the nomination and recognition.
Taking place to celebrate International’s Women’s Day, the awards are a timely reminder that only 15% of people working in STEM roles in the U.K. are female and just 5% of leadership positions in the tech industry are held by women.
“Achieve, Elevate and Inspire” is this year’s rally cry
Looking back over the past year, it has been a whirlwind and I hope this can bring me more opportunities to dispel the STEM stereotype.
If you’re looking for a graduate scheme in IT, then take a look and apply for the scheme that I’ve been on since September.
As part of the IT Architecture stream, I’ve been working with colleagues on designing new or making changes to existing IT systems. I’ve learnt so much within 3 months there already with the support of my line manager, mentor and sponsor, as well as, other members of my team and other members of the company.
As graduates we are also striving towards giving back, we are doing this through the company aligned charity Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
With the Costa sale, Whitbread brands such as Premier Inn and Beefeater, are going to be in an even stronger position for growth and this is where IT is key.
So take a look:
If you have any questions, feel free to message me! 🤓
6 years ago I went to Brunel University for a Computing Taster Day, having not decided what I was going to do at uni yet or what uni to go to, but that day I decided both those things!
Crazy how time flies, I’ve finished my degree and am working in tech, if it wasn’t for events like that I don’t know where I’d be or what I would have done. That’s why putting effort back into promoting STEM has best interest for everybody!
My week summed up: Early mornings, awful drives home, free lunch and nice work campus walks 🤓
Now for the weekend, seeing my boyfriend and relaxing before doing it all again next week!
It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x
Take a look at this article, about the most influential #WomenInTech !
Definitely worth your time looking into some of the women’s backgrounds and how they got to where they are!
So what’s this all about? What is #DoIT?
#DoIT is a campaign aiming to encourage and inspire to go into IT/STEM and to create a network through a platform for women to meet likeminded women to gain confidence that they can #DoIT!
Throughout the week Monday 30th July – Friday 2nd August, we will be uploading blog posts related to a different theme each day!
