Cracking the Digital Ceilingbe tech logo

The BE Tech Scholars Program is on a mission to crack the hi-tech ceiling where women represent just 25% of workers. This multi-year program for intellectually curious students from the Leeds School of Business and College of Engineering and Applied Science aspires to embolden future leaders and create an inclusive tech industry. 

Hallmarks of the BE Tech Scholars program include action-based learning experiences, industry engagement and mentorships, strategic career coaching, intensive tech training, a tight-knit peer community, and professional network development.

This distinctive program helps scholars develop the three career-advancement ‘accelerators’ identified in Accenture’s 2017 equality study: digital skills, a career strategy, and technology experience. These are the key drivers that guide the program and will catapult women into becoming bold leaders in the tech field.

The application for the 2021-2022 year has closed. The application will re-open for the 2022-2023 cohort in January 2022.​
