Girl Geek Scotland: ‘sticky floors’ workshop

Filed under: Events,Girls in STEM,Training,Uncategorized,Women in STEM — hwalker2 @ 12:12 pm

Girl Geek Scotland is a network and community for people working and studying in technology and related areas in Scotland. On the evening of Tuesday 7 February 2017, they are holding a ‘sticky floors’ workshop at Waverley Gate, Edinburgh, with speakers who work as personal coaches. The aim is to help people to think differently, to help them overcome the subconscious blocks that may be hold them back in their career (the sticky floor as opposed to the glass ceiling.)

For more information about the Sticky Floors workshop any other activities, or to sign up for their newsletter, go to the Girl Geek Scotland website.
