Access the webinar to hear from Sarah Wells, the former Technical Director at Financial Times, on how they made a difference to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
About this event
Sarah Wells worked at the Financial Times for over a decade. Joining them as a Senior Developer, she was one of the only women in engineering.
By the time she left at the end of last year, across permanent engineers in London the FT had around 35% women and non-binary, evenly spread at all levels and in the Tech Leadership Group, it was men who were in the minority.
Hear about the things the FT did that made a difference to impact diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
