Have your say

Rachel Watson, Sky Betting & Gaming’s Head of Service Operations, has penned this column for Digital City.

Do women feel fairly paid in tech in Leeds? Do female technologists think Leeds is a place in which they can fulfil their career ambitions and do they feel sufficiently challenged in their current role?

What issues do the people of Leeds think underlie gender inequality in tech and are we addressing them?

Last week on International Women’s Day we launched a pulse-check survey designed to reveal some top line insight into women working in tech in our digital city.

Is Leeds playing a successful role in the UK’s ambition to become the best place in the world for women working in tech?

Sky Betting & Gaming is a digital technology company that is welcoming more applications from women than ever before – but we recognise we still have work to do to encourage even more capable women into our tech roles.

We’d like to know more and to stimulate discussion and debate alongside the many great organisations already doing great work in this area, including She Does Digital, the Ahead Partnership and the WISE Campaign.

So if you have something to say then please add your voice to the survey which is now open, just visit here or find the write-up on the Leeds Digital Festival website.

The survey results will be presented in an open forum, prior to a screening of the film CODE – Debugging the Gender Gap, an official selection of the Tribeca Film Festival, on Friday, April 28, at Sky Betting & Gaming. We hope you’ll join us.
