WoW! London day trip to Women in Tech Conference
29th September 2016
In the very early hours of a Tuesday morning girls from Years 8 -10 made the long journey to London for a Women in Tech conference hosted by WoW (Words of Wisdom). This is an organisation that hosts a series of talks from female leaders and innovators in the tech industry.
Following the morning sessions there was the opportunity to try the latest tech from virtual reality to wearables; from apps to converting fashion photo shoot images on to an individual's face; to creating music using the latest technology.
Being the only school from outside of London seemed to make a big impression on the CEO of WoW talks who gave the girls a shout out in her introduction to the day, ahead of the key speakers. The day ended with Laura Haynes, Chair of the United Nations National Committee UK, speaking about her own experiences and why the United Nations is focusing its resources on gender equality.
This was a truly inspiring day, looking forward to igniting a bright future for the girls of Trinity.
