Girls Talk London is back with our first and only event of the year in partnership with Facebook and LinkedIn

"A Tech Summit for Black Girls in the UK who want to work in Technology!"

There has been a 13% decrease in the number of Black women working in Technology and we want to address this imbalance by giving black female talent in the UK access to opportunities in this incredible sector.

If you are studying a STEM (Science, technology, engineering & math's) subject at sixth form, college, university or have recently graduated and are looking for a way to break into this competitive sector, this is the event for you!

We welcome those who have not studied STEM subjects at any educational stage but have a strong passion and desire to work in Technology.

Join us on Friday 29th November 2019 at the uber-impressive Facebook London HQ for a day packed full of demos, talks, panels and the opportunity for you to meet with Senior Leaders and recruitment teams from Facebook and LinkedIn. Alongside this, you will be able to meet other black women who have a passion for technology soaking up all the buzz and energy from your peers.

After the Summit, you can take an after-hours tour of Facebook London and join us for our after-party networking mixer!

Black is the New Black brings together exceptional figures from the world of politics, business, culture, religion and science to celebrate black British achievement today. Artist and director Simon Frederick photographed sitters ranging from Naomi Campbell, Sir Trevor McDonald and Thandie Newton to musician Jazzie B of Soul II Soul and footballer Les Ferdinand, to recognise the profound impact of black individuals on British culture. The portraits were made as part of Frederick’s acclaimed BBC Two documentary series of 2016 on black culture in modern Britain. This display celebrates their acquisition as the largest group of portraits of Afro-Caribbean sitters into the National Portrait Gallery’s Collection.
