August 2016 – Diversity evening

Thank you to everyone who came to August’s meetup. Staffs Web Meetup held an evening of talks focusing on diversity in the web industry.

Thanks to both our sponsors – TopCashback and iWeb.

Talks

Rocking work – being yourself on a diverse team

Ruth Mills

We spend a large part of our lives in work. When we can be ourselves in work and celebrate our differences, we can collaborate better and achieve more, while making it a far more enjoyable experience.

Who ya gonna be?

Rebecca Troth

In this ‘tongue in cheek’ talk I’ll give some some insight into my experiences, thoughts on equality and other random things. I’m not promising the solution to inequality, I’m not sure anyone can, nor am I here to make you feel bad but I do believe in equality for everyone & you should too.

Diversity in Computer Science Education

Katharine Childs

What do we want the next generation of software developers, web designers and computer scientists to look like? Katharine Childs from the Raspberry Pi Foundation will talk about the challenges and possibilities of bringing computer science education to diverse groups of children, regardless of gender, disability, class or race.
