Cracking the hi-tech ceiling
The BE Tech Scholars Program is on a mission to crack the hi-tech ceiling and redefine tech as we know it. This multi-year program for intellectually curious women from the Leeds School of Business and College of Engineering and Applied Science aspires to embolden the future women leaders of tech.
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 building a professional network within the industry.
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 scholars into becoming bold leaders in the tech field.
Applications now open for the 2021-2022 academic year.
