It will empower readers make changes to the way tech can be improved, but how to get into the room where the decisions are made and create our own tech rooms.
Join us for an inspirational evening with innovators within technology speaking on a panel about the important role of women and diversity in STEM sectors.

Meet the local businesswomen making an impact in the environmental space at this event hosted by BIPC Glasgow, during COP26. Join us to hear their inspirational stories - their motivations, challenges and aspirations.
Sustainability is an increasingly important issue for many businesses. At this panel event you’ll hear how and why Trudi Donahue (Wild & Kind CIC), Lynne Haddow (Extincts CIC) and Fiona Lindsay (Reblade) took life changing decisions to start and run businesses with sustainability as a core principle.
The panel discusses why protection of the environment is important to them, their start-up journeys, sustainable business practices and sources of support.
The last few years have certainly been eventful for the food industry. From inflationary pressures to the enduring effects of the pandemic, many consumers have altered their food purchasing and dining out habits. However, despite these challenges ethical sourcing remains important: nearly four in five food and drink shoppers intentionally choose products with a sustainability claim (Mintel – Sustainability in Food report 2023).
Join us for an inspirational evening with Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, warmly known as The Black Farmer and Thomasina Miers, co-founder of Wahaca as they share their insights on the emerging trends in the food industry and the changing image of food on the high street.
Has the growth of new eateries in the UK serving recipes from all corners of the globe brought forth an evolution of British taste buds? Are food businesses raising the awareness of sustainability and how we can connect more with nature in our food choices? Hear about and discuss these hot topics, and more with the two well-known innovators as they also consider the part their own business journeys have played in revolutionising the face of the food industry in the UK.
This event is part of the British Library Food Season 2023
