As TV and new technology evolve together there are more jobs than ever before available to tech savvy specialists in the broadcast industry, yet women only make up 12.8% of the total STEM workforce in the UK. What can the industry do to break down barriers and encourage more women to take up STEM related roles in the TV industry?

Key industry players examine the issues facing women in the broadcast technology sector, including the impact of gender stereotyping at a young age, lack of awareness of opportunities, and access to training and mentors. 

Speakers: 
Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE
Sinead Greenaway, Chief Technology & Operations Officer, UKTV
Kate Kinninmont MBE, Chief Executive, Women in Film and TV (UK)
Anna Patching, Sound Engineer, OBstv
Chaired by Maggie Philbin OBE, CEO and Co-Founder, TeenTech
