Black Girls Tech Summit
In 2019, Girls Talk London in partnership with Facebook and LinkedIn launched “The Black Girls Tech Summit” a one-day event for black women aged 16-30+ who aspire to work in technology. Guests attended informational talks with senior leaders and insight sessions with recruiters and product specialists.
In 2020, the event went global sponsored by Facebook, Snap Inc and Pwc with over 1450 women in attendance from 31 cities in 14 countries. The summit returns virtually again for its third year on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th November 2021.
Step into STEM
Girls Talk London has designed and delivered Step into STEM, an award winning seven-month mentoring programme for female students in London in the first year of sixth form who study S.T.E.M (Science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects and want to work in Technology.
The programme is funded by O2, BT, Vodafone and Ericsson and has provided mentors for 186 girls. A majority of our alumnae are now studying S.T.E.M subjects at global institutions such as MIT in the United States and the University of Oxford. After completing the programme a significant number have taken on school leaver and apprenticeship roles at businesses, which include Cisco and Deloitte.
