Leeds Women in Tech Networking Breakfast

The Leeds Women In Tech Networking Breakfast is back! The aim of the event is simple, to meet new people, share advice, and learn new things along the way. 

For this event, we’ll be focusing on imposter syndrome and the tools that we can all use to help overcome that dreaded feeling. Joining us as our headline speaker is the wonderful Catherine Watson, Managing Director at Accenture, who will be talking through her career journey, the experience she’s had with imposter syndrome, and the tools she’s used to manage this. 

We’ll then split off into small breakout groups where we will be identifying instances of imposter syndrome, discussing our own experiences, and sharing tools on how we can combat this.    

This relaxed and informal event is a chance to pick up some new skills and make new friends as we once again enjoy breakfast treats from Leeds legends, Sociable Folk. 

Who should attend? 
This in-person event is open to everyone and will be of particular interest to women or those who identify as non-binary in the tech industry, or those considering a move into the tech industry.
