With nearly all employees needing some form of digital skills, these are now as important as numeracy and literacy skills. We need to attract a more diverse employee base in order to maintain the growth of Tech businesses in Wales.

This event will take you on a journey highlighting why it is important to nurture tech / digital skills from a young age, what it means in the world of work, how we can all benefit from better tech skills and why we all need to work together to redress the gender balance in Wales.
