Overview
This networking workshop aims to support and promote the presence of women in quantum technologies.

Despite global efforts to achieve diversity and gender balance in STEM and physical sciences, the scientific system is still facing difficulties in embedding a gender-balanced and diverse approach in its recruitment process. With the growing interest of quantum enabled devices and technologies for the UK and global market, gender balance became a priority area of improvement to achieve scientific and industrial competitiveness on both national and global scales.

 

In this context and in line with our national diversity and inclusion guidelines, the Women in Innovation program and the Quantum Technologies Special Interest Group are hosting a networking workshop to support and promote the presence of women in quantum technologies and discuss barriers and solutions towards a more gender balanced quantum landscape.

 

About the QT SIG

The Quantum Technologies Special Interest Group (QT SIG) will help to maximise the return from the UK Government’s £350m investment over 5 years to commercialise quantum technology. The SIG is a delivery partner in the Programme and supports and connects researchers, technology developers and users to link markets and suppliers to create a self-sustaining and profitable world-class UK quantum technology sector.
